Time For A CAS-ual Fridays card challenge!

This week the folks over at CAS-ual Fridays are having a 'red,white and blue' challenge and I thought it would be fun to join along.  Now that my boys are nearing the end of the school year, things are surely hectic, but it's a casual kind of hectic without the worries of homework and long-term book reports.  YEAH!  I'd say I'm more excited about summer vacation than my boys are, which deserves a YEAH YEAH!!, because that means I have more time to do some serious crafting, heh!  I'm also in full swing with Project Life via Studio Calico, which I feel I've waited an eternity to become subscribed to, so things are chill, but good. :)

But anyway!  Here is the card I'm sharing with you today:

My card base is (heart!!) Papertrey Ink's rustic white, and all the patterned paper comes from Authentique's Pride collection (from the 6X6 pad).  I think the bold blues and reds worked really well for a clean-and-simple card.  Many times when I'm working with intense colors that have strong patterns in the paper, I get crafter's block and have problems finishing the project.  I'm pleased with how this card turned out - just a few elements on the card, along with a cute sentiment to finish it off!  Clean and simple!

Hope you like the card!  Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

(other items used: star border die by Papertrey Ink, doily details die by Papertrey Ink, sentiment from Year Round Sentiments by Hero Arts)
