Red, White and Blue!

The midweek throwdown challenge is up over at Operation Write Home and we're making Any Hero cards with red, white and blue colors.  Looking at the cards today is like a July 4th parade and I had to add mine to the line up here:
The flag is from Miss Kate Cuttables; the hero cut file is #32171 from the Silhouette store.  I embossed the red vellum with the Stars folder and added some brads around the border.

I made another file using the same flag file:
The sentiment is by Lawn Fawn for this card, which I'm entering in the red, white and blue challenge at Party Time Tuesday.

My last card for today was inspired by the tropical card below, created by Jennifer Wills for the Muse challenge #74
I love the beach scene and since I just came back from a weekend beach retreat, I created a scene of my own:
The files I used are from the Just Beachy collection  by SVG Attic and the paper is the Glitzy Glitter 6x6 pad by DCWV.  The Silhouette cuts through the paper like buttah and the best thing is there's no glitter rub off!  The tiny sentiment is from the newest SSS stamp set - Sending love.  I'd just love to be in that chair thinking happy thoughts!

I'm also entering this card in the SVG Attic July challenge - Anything goes

I hope you can play along in the latest Muse challenge - they're always so inspiring!  
Thanks for stopping by!
