Red, White, and Blue

Hi Everyone! I have 2 more challenges to post today. I have really been on a roll this week!

Cupcake Craft Challenges is having a Red, White, and Blue challenge this week, and they are offering a fabulous prize from Simon Says Stamp! Head on over the Cupcake Crafts to check it out!

I decided to pair the Red, White, and Blue challenge with the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches this week. Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I am still playing with the new stamps I got from Papertrey Ink the other day. I used the Guidelines 2 set to stamp the red, white, and blue patterned background. That set makes it possible for anyone (and I mean ANYONE) to stamp a background! It is so easy to use!

I also used Everyday Button Bits for the sentiment. That set is just awesome!

I think those buttons for the balloons are so cute!

Thanks for Looking!
