This weeks challenge at Less Is More was to use the colors of your national flag. In my case the American flag and its proud red, white and blue. I love my flag, its beautiful. However as much as I love our flag and think it is wonderful, those colors should only be used on a flag. They look awful on anything else. (personal preference speaking)
I would say it's impossible to make a decent card with RW&B but the fabulous examples submitted for this challenge by the other ladies would disprove that statement. So what I will say is that I can't make RW&B cards and would rather they give us another acetate challenge. **sigh**
So keeping that key word "challenge" in my head I tackled this bad boy. On Saturday I was pretty pleased that I actually come up with a card that wasn't too bad. However, when I went to post it someone else had one so much like it and it was SOOO much better that I tore it apart and started all over again.

My only proud moment is right now, because I did NOT give up. As much as I hated this challenge, I did it. The cards suck and will hit the trash bin as soon as this post is completed, but I did it. So here are my attempts at the challenge. The first card is the fifth or sixth generation of the original and the second one is one of the several attempts at not using the stars. This challenge was a sinful waste of good paper. :(
