Red, White and Blue

It is gorgeous here and it feels wonderful! Yesterday, after the opening of Bella's studio I went outside and dug, pulled and tugged every weed in the yard!! I never thought pulling weeds would feel wonderful but it did! Just being out in the sun all day was so soothing to me and did me wonders! Did you make it over to Bella's Studio yesterday  and see the awesome free image, Wish Pickles? Isn't she just adorable and make you smile when you look at her? The challenge this week is to make a card using Wish Pickles! How awesome is that? The person who wins will receive a $10.00 gift certificate and 3 top entries will be chosen by Daphne and one person out of the three will be a guest designer!! You have to admit those are awesome prizes! So come on over!!

Red, White and Blue! I was thinking yesterday how colors have an impact in our seasons, holidays, and so many other things in our lives like wedding gowns are white! In the summer time, here in the States, we see red, white and blue everywhere celebrating Memorial Day and  4th of July. You hardly see these colors together in the winter. You know it is October and Halloween when you see orange and black showing up. Then beautiful Christmas with the bright red and greens with all the other colors mixed in between! Food for thought!

I actually made this card for two challenges but, when I finished,  I realize it was too late to post it to the one and their requirements of course was the red, white and blue! The second challenge is over at SCC in the Copic group and you had to use the color black! I used Alexa from the Victoria Case, Hearts and Hugs Collection made exclusively for SCACD.  Doesn't she look all summery and ready for any celebration?

Wonderful card Colleen! I love all the details and all the embellishments, you put a lot into this card and it shows! :)

Whenever I see these colors the very first thing that always comes to mind is the 4th of July, Summer, Parades and lots of FUN!
