Sketch Challenge 1


Thought it would be fun to participate in my first ever sketch challenge over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. I like their color challenges, so I thought I would give it a shot!

In honor of Memorial Day, I went with a red, white and blue themed card. For some reason, I always associate those colors with this holiday and Fourth of July.


I used the Snow Swirled snowflakes to replicate fireworks. I stamped the mailbox image from the For The Birds set onto Pacific Point card stock and handcut it out. Here's a close up of the image:


I thought it would be fun to use the Postage Stamp Punch for the Fabulous Phrases greeting to go along with the mailbox. Happy Stamping!
