This card is for today's sketch challenge at SCS (SC227). Thanks so much Roxie for another fabulous sketch!!! Roxie gave us an option as to what to do with the oval on the sketch. I chose to make mine bigger to fit this wonderful quote by George Washington.


I am using ODBD God Bless America set. I chose an interesting color combo for me. I combined deep gray, yellow, and vanilla for this card. I love how it turned out. I am also using some basicgray dp on one of the panels. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the horizontal layer. I used a Fiskars border punch for the vertical layer. I also colored the flourished die cuts with some coal shimmerz. I love this little pop of sheen. The shimmerz dries fast, too, which is very good for me.
