Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #178

ACK this post is going up late.  I could not get my internet working last night when I was trying to add it to the diva blog, and I cannot get it to work from my ipod.  I am missing some program that I need and dont know how to get it.

Well Monday is Memorial Day for those of us in the United States.  So what better way to celebrate than with a wonderfully patriotic color combination challenge.

I will be sad to see my Brilliant Blue retire but am excited about the new colors all at the same time.  I started out designing a patriotic card but I just was not feeling it so I went slightly another way.  Still patriotic but not all at the same time. 

dcbd$178This card was designed to fit in one of the open ended envelopes from Stampin’ Up!  I really like all of the cards that I have seen over the past few months with the squares with two rounded corners.  I have no idea who they originated from or who made the first one I saw, but I love them and they are so not my idea, but I can copy them!

Stamps:  Awash with Flowers

Ink:  Basic Black, Real Red, Brilliant Blue

Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red, Brilliant Blue

Accessories:  White Organza Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals

Tools:  Corner Rounder Punch

Hi Kristen I just wanted to let someone on the design team know that I tried to leave you guys a comment over on the challenge blog, but the word verification part is working properly. It shows the letters, but no box to put it in.

What I was going to tell you girls was:
I always associate red, white, and blue with a patriotic holiday. Thanks for helping me think out of the box with your wonderful non-patriotic projects!
