BC219 Three Cheers For the Red, White and Blue

Happy Friday! - It's time once again for the Blogger's Challenge. First let me say, WOW to all 66 enteries from last week. Lots of great inspiration.
It's getting harder and harder to pop by and leave comments on everyone's blogs but I try my best so if I've missed you I apologize.

Now for this weeks challenge. I've combined 3 different challenges for this card.





Blogger Color Challenge (Red, White and Blue)


Cupcake Inspirations #117
The card is based "loosely" on the Clean and Simple Sketch 146

- I did change some of the sketch elements so I am not entering it for the challenge but I did want to give them credit for a great sketch that helped to inspire my card.

I started out to use a little Rocket image on my card but it just didn't seem to fit the design once it started coming together. Instead I utilized the image and decorated the inside of the card as well.

So now it's your turn to play by linking below:



Card Details: Stamps: StudioG (Happy 4th and Rocket)

Ink: Pacific Point, Real Red, Memento Tuxedo Black
