Good evening and Happy Thursday! Hopefully you all had a super-special 4th of July, with all things Americana that's supposed to go along with it!
I just wanted to pop in tonight to share a card I made that was inspired by this week's sketch over at RetroSketches. What a great challenge this one was! There were a lot of elements on this card -- and, coming from me, that says a lot (I'm a girl who likes her embellishments, ya know what I'm sayin'??).....
This was the sketch, based on an original card created by the uber-talented Jackie Rockwell:
And here's my take:
I do believe this is the most literal I've ever been with a sketch. Stuck to it pretty darn precisely... :) These are Echo Park papers and the die-cuts are from Wplus9. The sentiment is a Hero Arts goodie.
Thanks for visiting! I'll be back tomorrow with a card for my sister, who celebrated her birthday this week -- how nice that she gets fireworks for her birthday every year!! -- and back again on Sunday for the "Summer" blog hop for DeNami Designs! Until then, take care of yourselves, my friends! :)
