CAS-ual Fridays - color block challenge

I've been a fan of CAS-ual Fridays ever since their challenge blog started a few months back, but this is the first time I've had a chance to join in one of their challenges. This week's challenge is to use color blocking on a project. Since the 4th of July is just a couple of week's away, I went with a red, white & blue color scheme and came up with this card:

I used my Cricut and the George cartridge for the squares and stars, and the MS Seasonal cake cartridge for the word "happy". Some Tim Holtz grungeboard and Blue Jean distress ink made up the number four, and then I added some rubon letters and some baker's twine to finish off the card.
