Red, Blue and Crumb Cake?

Looks like I'm a couple of days late for a patriotic card but I wanted to challenge myself with the Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge #162.  The color Crumb Cake really threw me.  I also used the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge #240.

Whisper White card stock was used for the card base.  Crumb Cake card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and matted with Pacific Point card stock.  I matted a piece of Real Red Polka Dot Parade designer paper with Pacific Point and added it to the Crumb Cake layer.  The sentiment from the Words of Courage stamp set was stamped on Whisper White with Pacific Point ink and
matted with Pacific Point card stock.  I wrapped some silver elastic cord around it and added it to the card.  The star image from the same stamp set was stamped three times on Whisper White (with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig) using Real Red, Pacific Point and Crumb Cake inks.  I matted it with Pacific Point, added silver brads and attached it using Dimensionals.  When I first saw this color challenge I couldn't figure out how to make the Crumb Cake work but it came together after all.  Thanks for coming by.  Hope your weekend is a good one.
