Red, White, & Blue... and Aqua, too!

Hello!  Hello!  Hello!

I'm posting a card for the Mid-month Throwdown challenge
 on the Stars & Stamps blog at Operation Write Home website.
It's a color challenge this month using red, white and blue-- a great combo!
Here's my card, using the challenge colors-- with a lot of aqua too :)

As you can see, my card relies heavily on this wonderful, whimsical pattern paper
 which comes from Stampin' Up!
Now I'm not a scrapbooker, but it's hard to resist these
colors and designs, even though it only comes in 12" x 12" sheets. 
One side has these sweet, smiling sea creatures,
and the flip side is the delicate white waves over the aqua
(aka Coastal Cabana) background.
I'm so tickled that I was able to figure out how to use these adorable, 
but large images, in an A2 card!
The sentiments come from Paper Smooches' Surf and Turf set.

Thanks for stopping in!
