Delightful Challenges Thursday

Good Morning everyone.  The holiday weekend is almost here - at least for those of us in the States.  I am so excited to have an extra day off and that makes it closer for my momma to come visit!

So this week's theme at Delightful Challenges is...

Red, White & Blue

It's Memorial Day on Monday so the color theme is pretty fitting.  I had fun with this challenge.  My card features Patchy Bear and at first I thought I'd just focus on his popsicle being red, white and blue like a bomb pop (you all remember those right?) - but then as all my cards seem to do, it evolved into going all out with stars and stripes.  My card is based on the layout from Sketch and Stamp.

I created the stars background just by using a cutting file from the Silhouette Online store.  The red panel is from a holiday balloon stand from the Dollar Tree and the stars are, too.  So for $1 I created some fun shine and texture and I have tons left for embellishing other cards.

Have a great Thursday!
