I'm not sure what to call the pattern of colors that is on the paper I used for this card but I love it. It's abstract and colorful and, to me, it screams summer! Maybe that's because it's from the Ice Cream Corner paper pack. Anyway, I made this card for the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0085. This week’s challenge is in honor of National Flag Week.
To participate in this challenge all you have to do is use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge. At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. As you can see, my card does not suggest flag day.
Here is the inspiration list for challenge #FF0085.
I decided to use Triangles, Rectangles, and Banner/flag die. Using the dies from Stitched Triangles made this card easy. This set of dies even had the banner die! I die cut a banner in the colors Bumblebee and Flirty Flamingo to match the patterned paper. A Stitched Rectangle also worked nicely for the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream Stamp set which I stamped in Flirty Flamingo. Here's a look at the card.
