Patriotic Thanks

Good afternoon! Today's card idea uses the layout from today's Unscripted Sketches. And I think you can tell where the theme stems from!

For the blue bunting, I used the eyelet border and then ran it through the paper crimper. *Be sure to leave the piece a little longer than you want it, since it will shorten when it's crimped.

stamp sets: Matchbox Messages (mini-catalog), Warm Words, Darling Dots (hostess level 1)

cardstock: riding hood red, brilliant blue, whisper white

ink: real red, riding hood red, craft white, white gel pen

tools: star, small star, scallop circle, and eyelet border punches

That's it for me today! Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by, Tasha

Love how you crimped the scalloped edge--just like a banner hangin off a porch! Thanks for joining us again this week.

I love that you used the sparkle stamp on this. I'll have to remember that, as I've only ever thought of using it with an engagement type card. Love these colors together, too.

Great card! I like how the card opens upwards instead of left to right.
