Memorial Day Sketch

A big 'Thank You' to all servicemen and veterans on this Memorial Day.


*** This card won a Perfect Princess Award***

Freshly Made Sketches has a great sketch this week. After I made this card we had a gas emergency at our house, while the gas company was fixing our gas leak...they cut the phone line which supplies our Internet. My daughter to the rescue....I am at her home using her Internet so that I can post this card before the deadline.


The stamp is from Outlines and was colored with Copic markers.

This is the sketch that was used for this card.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

I hope everything's OK with the gas emergency! Definitely don't want to fool around with that :(
Love the colouring - that hat is too much fun!

OMGosh! I just LOVE this card! Amazing coloring, and your take on the sketch is so cool. I love that you took parts of the main image and used them in the little squares, and the floss bow is perfect. Fussy cutting the hat, then embossing the white panel behind it was an ingenious idea. Your cards just keep getting better and better. Flourishes will be sorry to see you go!

This card is so fun. Reminds me of some of the hats I saw at the KY Derby a few years back. Great take on that CAS sketch, you've really nailed it. Hope your gas emergency is all fixed.
