Freshly Made Sketches challenge 143

Happy Monday!  I love the fourth of July. There are LOTS of traditions in my little town.  And yet, I must say that I am glad it is over :).  

The Freshly Made Sketch challenge for this week truly was a bit of a challenge for me.  It is not a sketch I would choose/design on my own.  However, I really like the results I came up with.  I will be using this card for two events I have this month- an open house on Saturday and a Card Club later on in the month.

Close To My Heart products I used:
*White Daisy Cardstock cut into a 4.25x5.5 card base
*Dots embossing folder
*Skylark paper packet (print, sweet leaf green, lagoon)
*Desert Sand dye ink
*Saddle dye ink
*For a Friend stamp set D1542
*Hello Blooms stamp set C1540
*Bonding Glue Stick
*Non-stick micro-tip scissors
*3D foam tape
*Scrap of white daisy for stamped image

I also used a scrap of chocolate brown cardstock- origin unknown and George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge.

Happy Crafting! -Dari
