PDCC87 - Slate Blue, Barn Red and Grey

This week's colors over at the Play Date Cafe are patriotic and a great masculine color combo. Check out what Jaclyn pulled together for the inspirational photo this week:

I had all the intentions of making a patriotic card with banner flags with stars punched out of each banner, but alas my star punch was a tad too big for the triangles. I started playing around with my die cut triangles and discovered I could make a pretty nifty argyle pattern! Here's what my end result was:

And here is a close up:

It's a simple card and the only thing that took any length of time was gluing those triangles on straight! lol
For the sentiment, I kept if very clean and simple and just used chipboard letters colored black. I think the sun was too bright when I took the photo because in real life the blue looks more slatey (don't think that's a word lol) and the red was deeper. Oh well, I'd rather the picture be clear and a little off in color than fuzzy and the right color :)
