Now for Wednesday's Designer Inspiration:


This week the designer's were given Red, White, and Blue for their challenge. Well with July 4th right around the corner how could you not do something representing that great summer holiday. Caroline made a simple but lovely "Happy 4th" card. She added some interest to the card by scoring the card base to represent the flag using the Martha Stewart Scoreboard.


Although they do not celebrate the 4th of July in Australia that does not mean red, white and blue, and stars and stripes cannot be used for other topics. Liz has used this week's challenge to create a layout featuring her son and the colours red, white and blue. She has put the emphasis on stars and added some striped paper, buttons and ribbons to complete this layout.


A vintage Fourth of July is brought to mind by Jan with this card that features old-time paper and the image of a by-gone era.

Be sure to enter your project link below and come back tomorrow for some more Designer inspiration pieces!
