hooray for the red, white and blue...

... *CUPCAKE*??!?!?!

ok, it must be said that some of my ideas make more sense inside my head; but this week at shopping our stash challenge #57, we are making cards that are either red, white and blue... OR which incorporate stars or stripes... or BOTH!

(patterened paper (all scraps!!!): scrapbook wizard, sei, making memories, doodlebug, dcwv, october afternoon, reminisce, echo park; glossy white cardstock: ranger; alphas: ek success; heart gem sticker: mambi; label: dymo; ink: colorbox; adhesives: 3m foam tape, tombow monorunner, sewing machine)

and as a matter of fact, i think this is just quite a cute card, in fun bright colors; but if you'd like to be patriotic, feel free to add that aspect, as well. remember, in addition to the USA, the flags of england, australia, norway, france, luxembourg, the czech republic, iceland, the netherlands, russia, slovakia, slovenia, cambodia, laos, nepal, north korea, thailand, liberia, cuba, panama, the dominican republic, chile, new zealand, and western samoa all share the same color scheme, so there is plenty of room here to manoeuvre!

as it happens, the june color challenge on the EAD designs blog is also red, white and blue:

so if you make a card or other project for either one before june 30th, you can get a "two-fer". if you need a bit of inspiration, be sure to check out the other SOS design team cards, they are (as always!) quite awesome... not that i am biased on the subject of my dt sisters' talent and creativity in any way!!! (ok maybe just a liiiiiiiiiiiitle bit!) (for that matter, the EAD gals' work is fabulous, as well!) :) :) :)
