Manic Challenge Monday #3

Fun and Fabulous Manic Challenge Monday! Today's challenge comes from a few different blogs. First up is the layout of the card which comes from Mojo Monday Blog! ( Be sure to stop by and check out their blog but to make things a little easier for this posting I am going to post their challenge. =)

"Happy Monday, Mojo friends! How's your summer treating you? It's been super busy around here, so this week we've got a simple sketch for you. Feel free to dress it up or dress it down to your heart's content. The ribbon, flower and rounded corners are simply embellishment suggestions. We just hope you're able to find a pocket of "ME" time amidst the busyness of summer activities to play along! Since it's the last week of the month, we like to mix things up and focus on non-traditional sized cards, so we've given you a Round or Square option. Try a round card, a square card or both if you're feeling really inspired!!."

I choose the square card for my project. I have never made a round card so I decided to do my tried and true. =) I might still try a rounded card today, not sure. I also decided to use the color challenge from Stamp Something *A weekly challenge blog* ( Again, to make things easier I will post their challenge here. Don't forget to stop by their blog as well. =)

"This week we'd like to CELEBRATE the end of June and beginning of July with a little RED, WHITE AND BLUE!! So celebration cards, 4th of July cards or anything really....just celebrate something and use red, white and blue to do it!!!"

It seems like just about every blog I found that was holding a new challenge is doing something red white and blue! I love Independence Day, Proud to be an American! So I was glad to see so many challenges including these special colors!

Great Challenges today! Thanks for joining me again for another Manic Challenge Monday!
