This is my card for 3 challenges: Sweet Sketch Wednesday, Simon Says, and Pals Paper Arts.
PPA136 June 7 The challenge for Simon Says is to be patriotic, use crowns or jems, or celebrate the diamond jubilee. I'm not British, so I chose to be patriotic, American style.I inked up the sentiment in 2 different colors for a neat effect.
Materials used:
Paper: Elemental Level 2 Paper pack, White Daisy and Cranberry cardstock
Stamps: American Celebration
Inks: Cranberry and Outdoor Denim
Other: Cranberry Grosgrain Ribbon, Exra Fine Glitter (red and white - not CTMH)
