Welcome to this week's Just Us Girls Challenge

This week Marisa has chosen a great photo for our inspiration challenge.  Don't you just love red, white and Kraft together!  Lots of inspiration here.....hope you are inspired to create something beautiful!

Here's my card
Did you ever have one of those card making days where you sit down and everything just seems to come together?  Well, this was one of those days for me.  I started pulling out papers and "poof"  the idea was there.  I hope you like my interpretation of  Marisa's photo.
