Sketch Challenge: Land of the Free

What a fantabulous weekend!  We had a great time this weekend with family activities and just spending time together, love it!  I did take time to create a card for this weeks Stamping 411 challenge and knew exactly what I wanted to do once I saw the sketch design.  I started with the Land of the Free single stamp (love how it has the song lyrics to make the stripes on the flag) and inked it with Real Red and Night of Navy classic markers.

For the back ground I cut various size stars with the Star punch (can't believe that one's retiring) and the Big Shot star die) in Whisper White and attached them to the Night of Navy cardstock before running them through the Big Shot with the Lattice Textured Embossing Folder so the stars became embedded into the design of the paper.  For the strip a used a piece of Real Red DSP from the Brights paper stack and layered it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock that was punched along one edge with the scallop border punch

 The final touch was to make a bow with Whisper White 3/8" taffeta ribbon and a star brad (the brad is retired but I thought it was perfect for this card).  Now check out the sketch we had to work with.

This card is fabuous!  I love how clean and bright it is. 

Just a reminder, there is still time to RSVP for this month's stamp-a-stack class which will be next sunday, the 12th at 2:00 PM, just email to let me know.

Hope you have  a great week and happy stamping!
