OWH Sketch 154

 
 
 
 
I went with the patriotic Thank You note theme. The patterned is Bo Bunny Liberty Collection. It has many Red Withe/ Cream, and Blue theme papers. One draw back some are very large prints like a flag or the big circle. So in order to put use some these pieces a lay out like this works giving use of some of large image. I cut a 3 inch section of the flag then cut up the one and a half inch squares. Then added the stars. My big star is silver shiny paper left over from other projects.
Patterned Paper: Bo Bunny/ Liberty Collection
Sentiment: Paper Smooches/ Simply Said
Cardstock: Neenah/ Cream ; Red
Dies: Spellbinders/ Stars
Twine: May Arts / Navy
Happy Crafting

Hi Barbara,

I love how you took the flag paper from this collection and used it for the four squares. The stars in the center are a great focal point. And, the blue twine against the red cardstock is the perfect finishing touch. Great card!
