Happy Birthday, America!

God bless America and happy Independence Day!  Twin friends share this celebratory birthday, so I wanted to let you see the cards that I made for them.  Since the twins aren't identical, their cards aren't either.
Three different challenge blogs inspired these two cards and helped me find my mojo.  First, I knew the Color My Heart Color Dare #149 was the perfect patriotic palette: Outdoor Denim, Ruby, Kraft, and Colonial White (which are the card stock colors I used for both cards).
Second, I liked the Sketch Friday Frenzy SFF070315 for the card design:
Finally, the Frosted Designs Red, White, & Blue with a Twist was the perfect excuse to use something old (card stock, Ruby and Gold polka dot washi tape, CTMH/Cricut Artiste cartridge, gold shimmer trim, durables studs, and gold sequins) plus something NEW: the August Close To My Heart stamp of the month, Framed!  I am so loving this new set!!! I am sorry to tease you with this almost a month early, but you are going to be glad that I did so that you can add it to your wish list. ;)

Enjoy celebrating whatever it is you're celebrating today!!!  Happy birthday Peg, Monica, and America!

Really cute cards! The Kraft paper sets off the red, white, and blue nicely.
