July 2012 Card Challenge

We have been getting a few request for a card challenge over at Merly impressions and as we love challenges, here is our first ever Card Challenge!

As you know the summer is usually a time of national celebrations around the world with the likes of Independence Day in America and Bastille Day in France but the summer of 2012 is a huge celebration of Britain with the Jubilee and the London Olympics taking place. So for this challenge we decided to go all "Pride of Britain" with a colour combination challenge:



So we are asking you to create a card (any size, shape or style) following this combination of red, white and blue and as I am not one to leave you without an example here is my card:


I used some gorgeous bits from the Miss Match paper pad as well as the "Cherish" and the "Number background" stamps.

The prize is a gorgeous Vintage Timeless paper pad! I hope that I will see you there!
