CELEBRATE the 4TH OF JULY


Today's card was inspired by a design by Barb Mann ... and also inspired by a couple of online challenges; Stacey Schafer's Curtain Call Color Challenge #36 of Real Red, Night of Navy, Kraft, and Whisper White and Create with Connie and Mary's 4th of July themed challenge (CCMC105).

It's blistering hot here in Phoenix, and I'm really wishing I was back in the Midwest where they know how to celebrate the 4th! On the other hand, I just finished up summer school yesterday, and am just happy to be starting my summer even if it is indoors!

Paper: Real Red Prints DP, Kraft, Night of Navy, Real Red, and Whisper White CS

Embellishments: Star Designer Brad, Silver Brad, Night of Navy 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon

Just love those stars, Nancy! Great CAS card!

FYI-We're just getting the sweet corn here in Iowa! Nothing better than locally grown corn! Now pair it with a BLT and I'm in heaven!

This card is really striking! While beautiful in Americana-style I can also picture it for many other cards. It would make an awesome sketch challenge. I suspect I'll case it more than once.
