TUC Challenges

So, I am a member of the Tangled Up in Creativity blog group....did y'all know that?  I bet most of you did!  LOL  We are two groups combined and right now, have two challenges going on....

One is to use red, white and/or  blue and the other is to make our own designer paper.  I have been strapped for time this week or so and decided to combine the two challenges into one great big card.  You can see the challenges here and here.

Well, I seemed to forget a couple important things....lol
The gorgeous digi is from Stamping Boutique - colored with Bic's and Copics, the sentiment is from Close To My Heart, and I stamped the 'designer' background with a mini * from a dollar set and the large star is from Laundry Line from My Mind's Eye.
