have a GREAT Day!

Happy 4th of July! It is a very HOT one here in Charlotte! Just went to a neighborhood parade and cookout! I am glad to be back home in the air conditioning!!!!!!

This card is a combinaiton of 2 challenges!
Design was inspired by the "Just Us Girls" (JUGS90)  sketch challenge for this week:

And the colors were inspired by "The Play Date Cafe" Challenge # 88:

What amazing colors once again this week!

This week's suggested colors are:
Red-ish/Orange...Yucky Yellow...Juniper
I loved this wild color combo.  I think the card turned out really cute!

It is a funky card that I think will be able to give to a guy or a girl!

The zigzag stitch was done by hand with my Sew Easy tool. And it is so easy!!!
It has several different style heads that can be interchanged for different style of stitching. I do not have a working sewing machine, so the Sew Easy is perfect!

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you, so please leave a comment!

Paper: Off Beat-Radical (Basic Grey);Bazzill
Stamps: Michael's $1 bin
Ink: Memento tuxedo Black
Accessories: Flower button(Sassafras);buttons (my stash)
