Happy 4th of July

I hope that today's post finds everyone of you doing well and enjoying some fun time with your friends/family.  Being in the hospitality industry (and this being one of the busiest weeks at the over three dozen communities my company manages) I will be one of the many who have to work.....but that's okay because I'll only be working for half of it. 

In the meantime, I wanted to encourage all of you to join us over at Just a Scrappin for our July 4th challenge.  The rules for this particular challenge are to create a July 4th project (card, layout, etc) using the colors red, white, blue and two others. 

For whatever reason I missed the color blue as one of the given colors and chose it as one of my 2nd colors.  Sorry about that.  Nonetheless I trust that everyone will approve of my creation. 

This was a rather easy card to create and required only two cartridges:

Accent Essentials and A Child's Year

I created a flag for my background using the scallop border from Accent Essentials and then as you can see chose a July 4th silhouette for my focal point.

Let's not forget the sentiment!  For this card I needed something special.  So I chose:

"How important it is
for us to recognize and celebrate
our heroes and she-roes!
~ Maya Angelou"

And now that you've seen my project be sure to hop over to Just A Scrappin to see all the other fabulous projects created by Team One of Design Team group.  Then after you have been amply inspired create your own project, link up, and play along with us.

I love this card! I have these cartridges and love what you have done with them. The use of the circles is brilliant. ( My little 12 year old grandaughter mad this comment) ;)

Fabulous card, Barbara! I love that you have incorporated the new hot trend in scrapbooking, using shapes in new and interesting ways. The inking adds a beautiful sense of depth for the silhouette of the little boy.

I love your use of the scallop border! It actually has given me an idea on a card that has been getting the better of me :)

Thanks for sharing!!

I love the sihouette of the little boy with his puppy reminds me of the grand marshall leading the parade
