Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Americana/Red White and Blue

Woo Hoo, It is Tuesday and time for a newSassy Cheryl's Challenge, and I get to be the Hostess.  I chose Americana because I love it and because in the USA it is 2 days before July 4th, yep July 2nd is two days before July 4th when we celebrate Independence Day.  They really let me graduate high school back in the dark ages.  I chose the too stinkin cute, Honoring the Flag--Maddie, to make my card:


Red, White and Blue to me is Americana,  Americana is Vintage, Vintage is Antique and Antique is distressed, so that is the direction my card took and Maddie followed that direction very well, I really like the way this little card turned out colored with copics, distressed with a lot of Tim Holtz distressed inks  and a little ink splattering, yeah I had a ball :)

The cute bicycle in the lower right corner is a free SVG file you can find on my pinterest board and the banner I made and punched holes with a tiny hole punch to string the bakers twine through to make it look just the way it wanted it to.   I created a red white and blue cutttlebug flower and then paint splattered it as I also did the bicycle, and banner.  The Peace sentiment is Tim Holtz also.

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for the challenge and be sure to drop by the new Sassy DT members blogs to welcome them and leave them a little love.  We are very excited to have them join us for the next few months and seeing their wonderful Sassy creations. Grab a Sassy Cheryl's image and play along in the Red, White and Blue challenge, you just might win two Sassy images in the random drawing held each week, someone has to win, it could be you.  Have you checked out all of the new wonderful Sassy images Sassy Cheryl has been rolling out.....I am in Sassy heaven....

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day and week....BTW you never outgrow your need to color, it is cheaper than therapy!!!

Oh. Cathy, I love all the distressing. You have to be the queen of distressed inks. That was the first thing I loved about your style years ago. You made the most awesome brown tone cards. I tried to mimic your style,but mine just looked dirty and depressing. This is awesome as always. Thanks for the bike link. How did you know it was on my have-to-have list? Hugs
