This card was made for the Polka Doodles challenge.  The challenge commemorates the life of one of the design team members, Enfys.  She lives 6 months in the UK and 6 months in the US and totes her creativity and her stash back and forth!  Her blog, Going Buggy, is having a celebration for hitting some pretty major milestones: 2,000 followers, 1,800 email subscribers and over 500,000 hits!  I hadn't heard of Polka Doodles before visiting Going Buggy, but it is a place that I will certainly visit often.

For the challenge you had to use red, white, and blue and it had to be a card that was suitable to send to someone in the US or the UK.  It also had to follow this sketch

Nikky from Polka Doodles even created some papers and a sentiment as inspiration for the challenge.  You can download them from the blog post.  So here is my card.

The diamond background paper is one of the freebies you can get from the challenge blog.  The image is from Meljen's Designs called Holiday Bird.  It was a freebie that is available here on the website.  The word "hello" was made using Alpha Stax from Colorbok that I have had in my stash for a very long time.  I punched the flower using a Marvy punch from Stampin' Up Real Red and a freebie gingham digital paper I found here.

Card measures 5" x 5"
Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder (under hello)
Bosskut Scroll # 0986
Fabric covered brad from my stash
