Hi friends!  Welcome to my post for Color Hues Challenge #44!  We have a special challenge today, we are playing cards with our sweet friend Michele from I Card Everyone!

For this challenge not only are we using the colors Red & Blue, Michele asked the DT to incorporate STARS and/or STRIPES in our design!

Since Color Hues is strictly a Color Challenge the stars and stripes are NOT going to be required from our participants, but if you want to add them in you certainly may!

I pulled out some Patterned Paper packs from Catherine Pooler Designs.  I pulled the Rockin' Red stripes and the Something Borrowed Stars.  I used the Capture the Flag Cover Plate Die to die cut the blue star paper and adhered them to my card.  I then trimmed a piece of the red striped paper and added that to my card, mimicking a flag.  

I die cut a circle using the Round About Dies and then stamped a thank you sentiment in midnight ink.  I adhered that to my card using dimensional adhesive.
