Celebrate- Three Challenges in One!
I created this card in celebration of July 4th. I decided to combine three challenges- the PP52 Clean and Simple (CAS)Sketch from The Paper Players , HSSFJ72 Stars and Stripes Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments and the CAS99 Stars Challenge at Pals Paper Arts. I modified the sketch a bit, but that is what sketch challenges are all about- using the sketch to inspire your creativity:-)
If you have time to visit each of the challenge sites, each of their Design Teams have created such beautiful projects and with all of the other entries- endless ideas!
As for me, I love anything patriotic- the feelings of pride for our country, our flag, our heritage and our military. With the anniversary of our independence as a nation soon upon us, we are again reminded that freedom comes at a cost and we should be thankful for those who serve our nation to keep us free!
This card was very easy to make using a few punches, Big Shot with a few dies and one embossing folder.
Stamp Sets: Fabulous Phrases
Ink: Night of Navy
Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Dies- Star, 3” Circle, 3 ½” Circle, Punches- Large Star (soon to be retired), 2 ¾” XL Circle, Word Window, Modern Label, 5/16” Handheld, Star Brads (retired)
Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you are having a great week and continue to give thanks for our freedom!
