OWH Sketch Challenge #179

Happy July!  I can't believe how the time is flying.  I had a great weekend making cards.  My hubby worked all weekend, so I spent my time working on Thanksgiving cards!!  Yup, my Halloween are done, so I want to get a box off soon and wanted to include Thanksgiving.

So here is the sketch challenge

and here is my submission

After taking the picture, I realized that I should have made the sentiment on a different color than I did. It kinda blended into the paper, not quite what I had planned.

The stamp is "Sweet Herbs" an ancient (obvioulsy retired) set from Stampin Up!  The paper (plain cardstock) is Stampin Up!  The designer paper is Cosmo Cricket from the "Earth Love" 6x6 pad.   Notice the little dots in the left hand corner? Those are new "candy" dots from SU!  I think I'm in love with them.  I will need to get all the colors. 

The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. My husband and I have a tradition of watching  the movie 1776.  It's a great musical about our founding fathers.  It's a very fun movie.   If you have a chance rent the movie. I hope you like it as much as we do! 

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!  God Bless America!!!

Love the garden themed card, reminds us why we love summer and the 4th of July too. Sometimes hard to remember with all this heat wave! Enjoy the movie, traditions are so special!

Great paper coordination. I love those little dots too! The image is so perfect for this card and I agree....almost didn't see the sentiment. I love the placement of it but it kind of blends in. I see so many flaws in my cards AFTER the photos lolol. Good thing we get DO OVERS :-) Thanks for sharing your great card!
