Friday, July 4



I hope you are planning some fun family time on this long holiday weekend.  Using the Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch below, I made a card with a 4th of July feel.  Here is this weeks sketch:

And here is my card:

 I used a red, white and blue color theme to go along with the stars I featured on my card.  The wonderful new Star Framelits enabled me to cut out the largest star from my red cardstock, and also to cut that into a smaller star to add back in.

 I created my background "designer paper" by using the middle of a flower stamp and repeatedly stamping it in red and blue all over the background to look like fireworks exploding.

Here you can see more of the background paper I created as it peeks out from the die cut star in the middle of my card.  I added some sequins and some printed vellum for accents and as one of the layers on my middle star.  I also used the small star punch from the punch pack to create the smallest star.

I hope you enjoyed my patriotic thank you card.  I used the French "thank you" for my sentiment just for a bit of whimsy.  I have made several of these cards to give to my customers this month as my thank you for selecting me as their demonstrator.

Place an order with me and I will be happy to send a thank you card to you, too.

Thank you for stopping by.  Won't you stop at our Sketch Frenzy Friday blog and see what the other design team members have created for you?  And we would LOVE to see YOUR creation also.

Happy 4th!!
