Time flies when you procrastinate

Hi everyone! Now isn't that the truth? I know many of you are so organized that all the projects are done waaaay ahead of time. Personally, I couldn't believe it was time for The Digi Shack's Thursday challenge already as I kept putting it on my to-do list! But it is a fun and appropriate one indeed, you'll be happy to play along with the DT.

So can you guess what the color challenge is from this picture?


Haha! You got it - with our wonderful 4th of July coming up, it's good old Red, White and Blue, with a dash of baby blue for a surprise. I think Mrs. Sam is one of my favorites out of the new Lani line found HERE. She's so happy and proud! I used the latest sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday's challenge blog because I am committed to getting sketches right. ;)

Nothing fancy here, just nesties, scraps of DP and ribbon that I am so happy to be using up. The embellis were from GAS - the USA one is a brad from the Dollar Scrapbooking kiosk. (You can find the link to them HERE.)
I wanted this to be a vibrant and fun card, Arlana's sketch worked out perfectly for all the movement that usually goes on at 4th of July celebrations.
So come on over! Show us Maui Wowies what you can do with red white and blue by posting your card link and comment HERE at TDS' blog, and also to view what the fabulous DT did with this color combo.
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! I need to go see if there were any other projects or swaps that I forgot to do. :D
*Love and Aloha*
