Gotta love holidays for inspiration! I got busy with some cards inspired by the fabulous Fourth today!
I started with a spirited "hello" card with a nice patriotic color palette. This old woman from RRD's Just Sayin' always cracks me up and I could not resist using her for this card! The sentiment is from the RRD Bits and Pieces plate. I loved these two papers together! Very festive!
I have entered this card into the following challenges:
Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
Unique Crafters Challenge - Patriotic
My second card also uses red, white and blue as it's palette and a playful couple dreaming the American dream! Dared to add celestial bodies and some shine over at Just Us Girls with their Wild Card - Stars and Sparkle Challenge, I surrounded the couple from RRD's Carnival Dreams with shining stars, from the same set, outlined with some gold Stickles for a bit of sparkle!
They turned out dreamy! I added the same fun red, white and blue flower paper from the last card as a backdrop. It always reminds me of fireworks!. Some shiny gold ribbon finished off this sparkly card!
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes (used glitter outline)
Party Time Tuesday - Be Patriotic (USA)
Have a Happy July 4th to all my friends here in the USA! Happy Wednesday to all my other stamp pals across the globe!
