SMC Challenge

Good Morning!! Today is Friday and that means that it is challenge day at Sew Many Challenges. This week the challenge is to create a fancy fold card with military, 4th of July or Americana as the theme.





This week we are being sponsored by:
Owner: Sue McMahon
This week one lucky participant will win a $15 store voucher from McMahon Five Designs!!!!
The image that I used on my card is called Tayla & Owen Independence Day. You can purchase this image at Sew Many Cards for just $3. I had so much fun working on this card but it wasn't until I was getting ready to post it did I realize that I had made a traditional card. I had forgotten to make my fancy folds card!!! I guess I was having so much fun with the Americana theme that I overlooked the rest. Sorry!!!


Now it's your turn to show us your take on this week's challenge. Just make a fancy folds card with a military, 4th of July or Americana theme. Then enter it over at Sew Many Challenges for your chance to win this great prize from McMahon Five Designs.
