Today's PPA challenge is for the sketch above.  I decided to use some of my new products I purchased from the new Stampin' Up!  catalog.  The new in-colors are so beautiful!  Gumball green, Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit are the in-colors I used for most of my card.  I did a lot of layering using various punches and some of the new framelit dies.  Here is the card I came up with below.

The card measures 5" X 5" square

Here is the layered circle upclose!

For my new catalog project, I used some of the new in colors for 2012-2014.  "Midnight Muse" is the star of the show in this project.  The designer series paper is:  'Comfort Cafe'.  A couple of embossing folders were used to add dimension to my project:  Perfect Polka Dot and Elegant Bouquet.  The stamp set is:  "Forever with You".  I used the in color Stampin' Up! markers to color the stamp before stamping it on vanilla cardstock.  Beautiful 5/8" Crochet Trim was used for the bow on the bottom of the card.  In the center of the bow is a brad from the Antique Brad set.

    Today's Challenge consists of the three colors in the picture below:

    When I layed the 3 colors together before I made a card for the current color challenge; I knew I would make a patriotic card.  The red, white, and blue instantly reminded me a of our USA flag.  Here is the card I came up with:
