We Create Red, White and Blue Blog Hop

Annnd now it's July!! The year is half over! I am so not prepared to realize that, but! here we are! And a new month always means a new blog hop to inspire your own creativity!

This month, since it's the 4th of July in the United States, and hot summer months elsewhere, we're going with the bold combination of red, white and blue! I wanted to stick with this set I am loving, so I put together a quick beach scene with this relaxing guy for a birthday card. I am in serious need of masculine birthday cards at the moment...!
I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, and it also works for the current SUO challenge to make a birthday card! Helpful!
Stamps: A Good Man, Well Said
Ink: Memento Black, Pacific Point, So Saffron, Crumb Cake
Stampin' Blends: Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Night of Navy, Ivory, Color Lifter
Paper: Balmy Blue, Whisper White & Pacific Point card stocks
Accessories: Stamping Sponges, Big Shot, Well Written dies, In the Woods dies

Mostly I stuck to red, white and blue, but I did sponge on some sand using So Saffron and Crumb Cake. It just needed something between the guy sitting and the water...

Any special plans for the 4th? Any special plans for July? We have a birthday and a little getaway planned but I am hoping for a little down time, since June was PACKED.... Maybe even a day that looks like this card! haha... Here's hoping!

Hop on over to see what Cheryl has made for you using the button below, then hop on thru everyone else's projects too! It's a short hop this month, but you'll find something to get your own wheels turning!
