SSSC76......Happy 4th of July!!

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS and HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

Here is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

I kept my card fairly simple, as those who follow my blog know I have been doing a theme this week, patriotic! It has been so much fun to come up with Americana type cards this week, especially since my patriotic stamp sets are nil. I did borrow, mid week, a couple of sets from a friend. This is the fun set from the summer mini called "July Fourth".

The base of the card is whisper white and I followed that with some night of navy. I used one of the firework stamps and versamark to add a design to the navy card stock I also added a few of the small stars to the navy as well.

The main element is made with whisper white and I stamped the sentiment with night of navy ink. I then inked up the firecracker with real red and summer sun markers and stamped it beside the sentiment. I then added some stars to the corners with real red and navy ink. I used the corner rounder punch on one side and matted with real red. I added a strip of real red under the main image panel with two white brads at one end. The large star is from the same set and is stamped in red and punched out and added to the main panel with some foam tape. I finished off with more white brads an a bit of 1/4 inch grosgrain red ribbon.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
