Just For Fun July Challenge

Hi and welcome to my blog. Are you looking forward to the Fourth? We always love watching the fireworks in our town. How about you? The challenge at Just For Fun this month is to use the colors red, white and blue. Your card does not have to be a July 4th card but I made a July 4th card to show you that you do not have to necessarily use patriotic symbols. On my card I used the Just For Fun Birthday Cupcake stamp and some fun dies.

I started with a striped embossed blue background. I used the cascading stars from Spellbinders, by cutting a few from that die and adding them to the top of the card. I inlaid red stars into two of the white stars. The letters USA are dies from Momenta. I stamped, colored and fussy cut the cupcake and pop dotted it to the card. Star sequins were also added. I made the banner by hand and used the saying from the Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you will join our challenge. We would love to see what you create with these colors!

Happy July 4th!
