ColourQ #144... just in time!

This weeks ColourQ challenge was a patriotic combo:  Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, and White.  I thought flags and kids and fireworks!  But then I was sitting at the baseball fields waiting for fireworks to start and listening to a band play a little Springsteen when the idea came for this card:

Nothing says Independence more than the free spirit of ROCK!  And yes, my grunge factor kicked in again this week.  I used Grunge Rock to liven this up.  Oh, and I didn't have any Brocade Blue paper, ran out at least a year ago, BUT I did have the very classic Buckaroo Blue paper and ink to use instead.  I hope you like this throwback as much as I loved creating it!

It's been a while since I've seen Buckaroo Blue around the stamping block but it totally works here! Love the grungy factor of your card! Thanks for joining us at colourQ!
