A Couple of Challenges

I had some free time, so I thought I would play in a couple of challenges that came in my email.  I'll start off with the sketch from Sunday Stamps #280.

I grabbed an inked panel from my stash, cut it to the desired sketch, and added a layered butterfly.

To finish off this card, I added a Simon Says sentiment strip.  Super fun sketch that I enjoyed using.


I went on to be inspired by the AAA Card #212 Challenge; Along the Edge & Your Country. This challenge was perfect!  My step son is retiring from the Air Force - 20 years - and is having a party.  What better opportunity for a patriotic card!

I used some images from an out of business company that worked perfectly!  Sponging on the red and blue let's you know what country too.

Yep, I am looking forward to giving this to him.  I bet he loves it!

I had a great time playing in these challenges.  Thanks!
