DCWV Card Sketch

So recently I've come across the DCWV sketch challenges. I will say that I had a few stacks laying around and I really like challenges that make me start using my stuff.

I found the August Sketch Challenge for DCWV here: http://dcwvinc.blogspot.com/2012/08/august-stack-hoic-challenge.html. I did the card challenge this time around. When I saw the sketch I instantly thought about doing a Red, White and Blue banner.

I knew what stack I wanted to use. My new favorite Citrus. Yes, it had the perfect Red, white and blue in the stack. I love the pretty red and the denim blue.

I have learned a tip on how to make banners w/o getting my cricut out. I use a square punch and make them that way. YES they are done by hand.

I wanted to add a few little stars and some twine. I actually used the hemp twine.

The sentiment is from Emma's set - My little firecracker with http://www.creativetimeforme.com/. I thought it was perfect for this challenge. I know the 4th is over but I don't think you need a holiday to show your pride for America. I also wanted something to tie into the Olympics.

I love the simple sketch and the way this card turned out.

Hope you enjoy and

Happy Scrappin'

This is such a cool card! I am loving all the layers in the banners and the tone of the colors is very pretty!
