Red, White and Blue or Red and White Color Challenge 6/28/10

Happy Monday to you.  Given that in the US we are coming up on our annual celebration of our independence day, I would like you to make a card which incorporates the colors red, white and blue.  You can use other colors but the red, white and blue should be the primary focus.  Your theme can be of any that you want.  I know that it's also going to be Canada Day, so if you would like to make a card that is just red and white, go for it!! Can't wait to see what you create.  The DT has created the most amazing samples.  Before I show you the DT's cards you just have to see what our guest designer Sharm has created, it is just stunning.  I hope that we have given you some great inspiration and I can't wait to see what you come up with.  Happy Independence Day everyone and to our friends who live in Canada...Happy Canada Day.

"I'm Sharm from Sunny Malaysia..the weather's been rather unpredictable so it's not reli sunny that often these day *lol* :) I'm a SAHM to a very mischievious one yr old bratty lil gal that I love loads and a wonderfully supportive hubby .. :)

I love all things handmade & indulge in a variety of handmade hobbies that include card making, scrapping and jewelry making. I’m especially passionate about card making as I always believe that a lot of things are said through cards…A handmade one is beautiful to receive as it is beautiful to make. It is also a poignant way to express a thought that comes straight from the heart. Though my time is fully occupied with my lil princess, I make time to indulge in this hobby that I find to be extremely therapeutic after a busy day with my baby.
I'm also a self-confessed hoarder! *lol* I can't walk out of a scrapbooking supplies store empty handed!"

I love the measuring tape on the side, the awesome detail on the punched border and those flowers are just gorgeous.  I also am a big fan of square cards, it is great to think outside the box of creating all 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" cards.  Here's her blog if you would like to see more of her gorgeous work!!!


Corinne created this darling red, white and blue card. Her little birdie is so cute and the flowers are just pefect. The mix of patterned paper and solids is stunning.

Jerusha designed this adorable red, white and blue card in honor of Canada Day! He is so cute and I love the embellishments and the coloring is just fabulous. Happy Canada Day everyone.


Isn't Dani's card just so cute.  I love the basket with all the patriotic colors and the glitter is just fabulous too.


I just love that big bow and those stars are fabulous.  It is so fun and cheery.


JJ used the same paper line as Sandi and yet their creations are both so gorgeous and so different.  I love the stars and the bling is just fabulous.


I just love that doily flower with the button on the inside.  How pretty and vintagey looking!!!


Melissa made the prettiest card to celebrate Canada Day as well.  I love the distressing and the pearls are fabulous.


Here is my card.  Thanks for looking.  Have a great week and I can't wait to see what you create and look forward to leaving you some love.  Now it's your turn - let's see your cards with red, white and blue.  Get your card posted here by Saturday July 3rd at 8PM EST. Then winners will be posted here on Sunday the 4th. The winning card creator will receive a Guest DT spot with the card team for the week of July 12th.
