Happy 4th~ July with Just A Scrappin!

Happy Fourth of July my friends!!!! I am sure many of you have had a taste of summer with this heat we have all been getting and with the Holiday comes pool parties, bbqs and family fun! Fourth of July for my family is a huge event and it's the start of our summer and it's the start of a month full of amazing challenges and a super blog hop over at Just A Scrappin'! This week's challenge is to create a project, card or layout using the colors Red, White and Blue and to use any other two colors. So here is my card for this week's challenge.


My card is a standard A2 card. I used the three main colors of red/white/blue and the two colors that I incorporated were cream and black. The cardstock used was bazzill and the pattered papers are from K and Company. I cut the two banners with my trimmer and created the banners with my scissors. The word "happy" is a stamp by "Ditto" and the "4th" was a stamp I used from Making Memories numbers stamps. The "4th" sentiment is up on foam tape. I also added some washi tape under the sentiment with a quarter of an inch strip of red paper to draw my reader's eyes into the center of the card. I usually do not make July 4th cards so I think this came out pretty nice. Very patriotic, don't ya think?  
Here is a peek at the inside:

Now be sure to head on over to Just A Scrappin and see what my design team sisters have created and link up your own project for a chance to win some blog candy!! Enjoy your Holiday!!!
Hugs,
