The challenge today at SCS is to make a 4th of July card with NO RED or blue. Easy.

Just not for me!! You know how I love RED! Here's a story that will make you laugh............ when I first made this card, I used my wonderful cloud template, and used caribbean blue to make the sky. Then I added the purple mountains, and was glueing it down, and realized what I had done. NO BLUE!! Back to the old drawing board!!

This image is a sneak peek from Mark's Finest Papers that will debut in August, called Regal and Proud. Be sure to watch for's fabulous!!

Please take a look below at my entry for the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. That one is in the REAL 4th of July colors!!!

HERE is the link to the picture that Lori, our Fearless Leader chose to give us for inspiration this time.

I just loved all the Patriotic colors, and what a group of wonderful items to include for Labor day, or for the 4th of July, which is a bit closer.

The blue containers, white branches, and the white background with the RED flower was very intriguing to me. You know, of course, how much I love anything RED!, so that can't be a surprise.

Here is my card. The blue dp shows up a little darker than it really is. It's exactly the same color as the centers of the Hero Arts flower. The stem is embossed in white, to compare to the branches in the picture. I added a row of punching at the bottom, in circles, like the life preserver, and kept that theme with the RED buttons.
