Crazy 4 Challenges #243, a Colour Challenge

Good morning friends!

It's time for another challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, and our hostess is Frances Byrne.  She has chosen a colour challenge - to use the colours Red, White and Blue.

Once again, I chose to use my hot air balloon stamps - and I (mostly) stuck to the colour scheme.

The Pop Up dies (Pop it Ups) work SO well for setting up scenes like this ...

The cute polka dot printed paper was a scrap in my stash, and I only have the smallest bit left. But I'm hanging onto it, as you just never know when it will be the perfect addition to a card.

We would sure love you to play along with the challenge, and link up your project. Be sure to check out what the rest of the Crazies have come up with for the challenge, at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.  (If you link up to an on-line gallery, please use the keyword C4C243.)
Supplies used:
Card size: Standard A2 (5-1/2 x 4-1/4")
Lucy Label Pop Up - Pop it Ups, Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs)
Red card stock
White card stock
Hot air balloons, clouds, stamps and dies (Lawn Fawn)
