Red, White and Blue... Through and Through!

Aaaah! We're still eating leftovers from Sunday's big ol' cookout, so that left me some time to knock out something for a few of the week's challenges.

It's a window or an aperture card, one that has the main image inside.

I used stamps from the {Ippity} set, Straight from the Heart. (Which, of course, means I'm singing Bryan Adams to myself, now. Badly. Child of the '80s thing.)

The wings on the heart are a graphics set from Lettering Delights. I used a Nestie to cut the window (Labels Two) Embossing on the inside is a QuicKutz folder. I inked up a Cuttlebug folder with white Color Box pigment ink and ran a piece of Red Carpet Bazzill CS through to make the front paper.

This is for the challenges at:
Paper Makeup Stamps - make a window card.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - aperture creations
Raise the Bar - colors of your flag
Oh, Alice! - red, white, and blue
The Shabby Tea Room - embossing

Whew! I hope your holiday was a good break for you. We enjoyed the fireworks at Carowinds. I managed to get bitten twice by a fire ant while watching - I made AJ put on sneakers, but I wore flip-flops. Should have followed my own advice. I'm still itching!

Have a wonderful week. Wear your tennies, y'all!
