Thinking of the Sunshine!

Even though 4th of July has passed, I am really enjoying working with these colors. I am combining two challenges with this friendship card. The first is the Cuttlebug Be Inspired challenge. The challenge was to use red, white, and blue with buttons and the Swiss Dots folder.

Then I looked over the challenge for Stamping 411, and the pattern. It was so nice to work with this pattern and combine the lovely red, white, and blue papers. Here's what I used:
  • Outdoor Denim Textured Cardstock
  • Creative Imaginations Sugar-Coated Paper
  • Outdoor Denim CTMH Accessories
  • Bazzill Flowers
  • Memories Complete Overlay

I do suppose I should have stamped on this card, but this overlay was perfect for the card I want to send in the next couple of days. Oh how lovely the Swiss Dots folder is on the sugar-coated paper. I just wishes it was easier to photograph! I used Cuttlebug metal dies to make the 3 scalloped squares.
