Did you see the Stars and Stripes projects by the DT on BBTB2 challenge blog? Although they were all awesome, I LOVED the card by Melanie for its creativity.

I am SO over that Pebbles paper! Time to shop for something different, right? Thanks for visiting with me today as I hustle to get ready to watch Team USA in action on the soccer field. : ) Christine
