Join the FUN at The Card Concept

Are you ready for another FUN challenge?  Well, we've got a great one waiting for you over at The Card Concept and we really hope that you'll come play along this month.  There's a beautiful inspiration photo to give your creativity a kick-start along with several inspiring cards from our Design Team.  Just head on over to The Card Concept Challenge to check it out and join the excitement.
I used two different cardstocks (black and blue) layered with some JilliBean Soup patterned papers.  I did a bit of machine straight stitching on the outer edges.  Next, I stamped the patriotic sentiment using the Red, White & Blue Stamp Set from Stamp Simply.
Stamp Simply carries lots of great Patriotic Stamp Sets as well as covering pretty much every topic you can imagine.  This particular stamp is really because it has so many great sentiments and makes a fabulous background.  Whatever speaks to you in the inspiration photo will be a perfect starting point.  Just let your creativity run wild and come share your art with us.
Be sure to head on over to The Card Concept to see all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team, and to play along with us.  We always enjoy seeing your wonderful art shared in our challenges and hope that you have FUN creating.  Have a great week.
You don't necessarily have to share a patriotic card.  Whatever this photo does to inspire you, we'd love to hear about it.  Please come share your art with us this month at The Card Concept.  Happy crafting.

I'm playing along in the following:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Use Patterned Papers" - I used several gingham and polka dot patterned papers on this fun patriotic card. 

Double D Challenge Blog - Theme: Polka Dots - I used some blue/white polka dot patterned paper as well as a red polka dot firecracker.  Just look at all these FUN polka dots.
Create something exciting for yourself and come play along in these FUN challenges.
