CCMC362 and CTS130

DSCF0703

Happy 4th of July everyone!  Wishing all my American friends an awesome day!  A lot of birthdays popped up in my reminder calendar, so I thought I’d better get to work!  I never seem to have enough masculine cards, so I thought the color challenge from Create with Connie & Mary was a good one, and appropriate for today:

CCMC362

and I incorporated it with the sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch:

I used the image from Amazing Birthday, stamping it in Lost Lagoon and Real Red and did some old-fashioned “cut and paste”!! 

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Amazing Birthday in Red White and Blue

Stars were from Something to Say, and the birthday sentiment is from Sprinkles of Life.  I cut the banner with the Banner Triple punch, adding a Lost Lagoon mat.

I used the Delicate Designs die and EF (retired) to create the edge on the white panel, and embossed my Crumb Cake card base with the Large Polka Dot EF.  I love the dots AND the colors!!!  Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy went to a wedding a wee bit back, and had fun dancing with her little girlfriend!  Their dresses even matched a bit!

Another lovely card Leanne. The colours look great with this stamp and I like how you've really made the sentiment the focus.

Gorgeous card my friend - I love your embossed edge and how you used the Amazing Birthday set in a new way - way to go! Cassidy looks so pretty too. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!

What a great take on both sketches! I love all of the layering. I'm a big fan of polka-dots so you definitely wowed me with your textured background. :) Thanks for playing along this week at Create with Connie and Mary!

What a fun card LeAnne! I love the decorative edge behind the banner and the banner looks so great in those colors! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

Fabulous card...I love how you pieced it all together. I'd forgotten about that great die and matching EF to give that beautiful edge. Very pretty and a great card design. I love the bold flower. Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary this week. :)

Cool, cool, cool! I love the polka-dot textured background and how it ties into the littler dots on the stamped image! So neat! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie and Mary!
