Simon Says Stamp Sporty or Patriotic Challenge

Hi everyone,

I'm back with another Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!!


Today's challenge is to make something with a sporty or patriotic theme and the design team was to use Cuttlebug products on our projects. Anyone who knows me knows that 'sporty' is never used in a sentence to describe me. Ha! I decided to go with the patriotic theme. ;)

Here's my card:


I love this Hero Arts 'It's a Parade' stamp. It seems so celebratory to me. I also used Hero Arts 'Single Starburst' stamp to create fireworks. Nothing says a patriotic holiday to me more than fireworks. I used Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder on the pink background.

I hope you'll join us in this week's challenge! Up for grabs once again is a $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store. For all the details and to see what the other designers have come up with go HERE.




Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah

This is WONDERFUL, Sarah! Never would've thought about the children's parade image, or the starburst image, and yet these two go together and portray a festive scene so perfectly, it's like they were all made to be used with each other just for this purpose! Truly, a brilliant card! :)
