Happy 4th!

Happy 4th!

When I saw this week’s Color Combination challenge on SCS, I immediately thought of Independence Day. I decided to make a 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ card out of Blue Bayou card stock. I also used a 4″ x 4″ piece of textured Soft Sky and a 2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White card stock. With my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I lined up the Real Red number 4 and the partial “thank you” stamp from the Wonderful Words set, which I inked up with a marker. Then I stamped “happy” in Blue Bayou and the little stars from the Classic Backgrounds set in Soft Sky.

I punched out a couple of Blue Bayou stars and a Real Red one, and added eyelets to them. Two stars were given some dimension, and a red gingham ribbon was tied along the bottom edge of the Whisper White panel.

Thanks for stopping by!
