Made Especially For You, Sketch Challenge

Pin It
This week at Made Especially For You the challenge is to make a card with the sketch below. I had some canvas bunting flags with grommets by Maya Road from an old Studio Calico kit I had that I never used. When I saw the sketch I went on a mad hunt to find them in my craft nook! When I finally found them I stamped an I, a heart, and a U on each flag in Stayzon ink. Then strung them up with linen thread to match the sketch. I cut a piece of scratch blue and polka dot paper and rounded the edges, again to match the sketch. After that I just did my own thing and rolled some roses from felt that I had left over from another project and adhered them with Glossy Accents. I felt they needed some leaves, so I cut some off a left over strip of Amy Tan fabric stickers. Then I made a flag and stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment from Lawn Fawn. Because the roses and bunting took up a lot of the design of the card, I decided to not add the three embellishments at the bottom and I did faux white stitches instead to fill up the rest of the empty space. That's my interpretation of the sketch, can't wait to see how you interpret it! Make sure to stop by the blog and see how you can win a Cricut cartridge, too!!
