Challenge #10: Inspiration Colors

Hello Users! We are feeling very 'original' for the challenge this week ;)

We want you to be inspired by America's Independence Day and use RED, WHITE, AND BLUE on your creations!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday July 8th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE010 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

France purchased a Lord Tim of Holtz seasonal paperstash, which contained these lovely papers. "I've had them for ages and was happy to finally do something with them. Not obvious for a Belgian gall to make an American patriotic piece, but I had great fun making!" Ha! See, even a gal from Belgium can play in our little color challenge! :)

Haven used her stash for all but the rhinestone stars! Oh yes, ladies and gentlemen, she has a cardstock hoarding problem! Good thing people who live in glass houses should not throw stones! (Or maybe we should change that to people who live in craft rooms should not throw scissors...or paper airplanes...) :)

Heather made a card that literally made me laugh out loud! I love the ringy sentiment! Ironically enough, she said she does not have much of a need to send thank you cards 'down south', so the stamp sat uninked! And we are so glad she dusted off that leaf die and use her ribbon slide! It all fit perfectly, eh?! (That eh was for you Heather!)

Nancy has a love of buttons. Yes, you may wipe the drool from you lips because we know you do too! Buttons are so fun! As are flowers! And Nancy has quite the 'collection' from the Mike's floral dept! Who knew you could color them like this, though?! **love**

Sonya used many dusty items for this beauty! First off, she got this darling stamp from SU convinced she would use it for a Father's Day card...not as of yet! Paper...scraps from a calendar she made! And finally...and this one is noteworthy...flowers were from her very FIRST trip to Archivers! I know, I am honored she used them for a UIT post, too!

Dinah used a left over red base piece by My Mind's Eye! Why I can't I ever think to dress up solid paper like this?! She also used up hoarded thickers and all those alphabets, PLUS some rub-ons! What an amazing page!

And now, we have our Guest Designer from Challenge #8!! CARRIE!!! Thank you Carrie so much for designing for us! Do you know what she used? Not only old ribbon but an old DOOR HANDLE! Seriously...amazing!!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
