DCWV Card Sketch
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
