Cupcake 196: Red, White & Blue

This challenge for Cupcake Craft Challenges was by far the most difficult & frustrating for me than any other challenge I've done. Why? It's just a simple color scheme, Corrinne - How difficult can that be?

I'm a July baby, so everything for my birthday (whether it's a calendar or personalized item) always has this color scheme along with stars & stripes. Hey, I like red, white & blue. I like stars, too. I just would like a little variety for July!

Ok, ok . . . enough with my thoughts. Let's get to the task at hand, which is sharing my creation with you. The first card I made was nice, but it needed more to it & I just couldn't figure out what to add. My second card was okay, but I messed it up with painted flowers. This is my third attempt . . .

The flower & heart are crocheted (not by me as I suck at crochet.) I painted, glittered & sealed a chipboard flourish for the embellishment under everything. The background print is fabric NOT paper.

I am a guest designer at Cupcake Craft Challenges for the month of June! Join me & the other wonderful designers by making your own Red, White & Blue creation to share.
