Mid-Week Creativity

The current SumMoreFun mood board includes several gorgeous patriotic photos. I created a card using the red, white & blue color scheme, plus included patriotic subway that I found here-

Wanted to create a card for the current CAS-usal Fridays Sketch Challenge, and decided that this image from Beccy's Place would be the perfect match for a spray of stars! To add a bit of excitement to the card, (and allow me to enter the card in Double D's challenge, "Bling It Up", I punched stars from sparkly silver paper, cutting the centers out with an Exacto-knife to allow the starry night sky to shine through!

I won this fun image from DigiStamps4Joy a few months ago. When I needed a hello type card to send to a friend with a great sense of humor, I decided it was time to put this digi image to work. I am not sure if it is an Ostrich or Emu, so I used neutral colors for his feathers. Then fussy-cut the intense little guy and attached him to a cloudy background (scrapbook paper). I printed the sentiment via my computer.

  6. Great colour scheme for your patriotic card Kathy, red, white and blue is a fabulous combo. I like the different types of fonts too.
    The sparkly stars on your second card are awesome and work perfectly with the image. I really like the way you've added solid stars along with the wide outlines. You did a great job colouring the spaceman.
    I think the image on your third card is an ostrich. Their eyes are more toward the side of their heads, while an emu has eyes more toward the front and a little smaller than an ostrich. Anyway, whatever it is, the card is fabulous. I love the expression on her face and the matching sentiment you used. Great job!
