Land of the Free ...

Good morning! Happy 4th of July to all of my US Followers! I hope that everyone has a FUN & SAFE Holiday weekend!

As I mentioned last week I am now sharing creations for the various Challenges that Sassy Studio Designs is Sponsoring, so here goes ...

Challenge #224 ~ "No Square Cards"

This one is always a challenge for me, but I truly love how my card turned out. Have a look ...


I used a NEW Sassy image for today's creation. Her name is Patriotic Pinup and she is the first FREEBIE that Lindsey is giving to all of our fabulous Sassy FANS! Make sure that you keep an eye out on the Sassy Studio Designs Blog for all the details on how this beauty can be yours for FREE before she gets put in the Store.

Here is what the card looks like fully opened ...


Patriotic Pinup was colored with my Copic Markers, cut out, and put on my background. The sentiment and DP you see is from Paula Spagnuolo, and it's called One Print Card Kit - Patriot. I don't remember how I got it, but it was FREE and it's fits my design perfectly.

Make sure you head on over to the Sassy Studio Designs Blog to see what my Sassy Sisters created, and then upload your creations to the Dutch Dare Card Challenge for a chance to WIN some fabulous Sassy images of your own.

I truly had FUN creating today's card, and that says a lot as I prefer to make standard cards.

I'm entering today's card into the following challenges ...
 - Crafty Sentiments Challenge ~ Red, White & Blue
 - Digi Darla's Challenge #69 ~ 'Stars & Stripes' (red & white) or (red, white & blue)
 - Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #178 ~ Anything but a Square Card
 - Inky Impressions Challenge #115 ~ Red, White & Blue
 - Paper Pretties Challenge #265 ~ Red, White & Blue

Until next time ... Enjoy!
