Sweet Stop Sketch - God Bless!

Hi everyone! It's time for today's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. It's kind of sad for me today because this is my last card as a Sugar Baby. I remember when I got the email from Korin on Christmas Day of last year inviting me to join the design team. As if Christmas wasn't already great, that made it even better! I have really enjoyed being on the team and working with the other Sugar Babies. Thank you so much, Korin!

I used the 4th of July Project Pantry Kit from Taylored Expressions for my card. I love these beautiful papers from the We R Memory Keepers Old Glory Collection. I followed the sketch pretty much to a "T" this time. I stamped the image - God Bless the USA by Taylored Expressions - in Memento Rhubarb Stalk, cut it out with rectangle Nestabilities, and sponged around the edges with Memento Summer Sky. I added some stars from the kit to the fireworks and also added some Stickles in Waterfall and Christmas Red. I used my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch for the trim, and added a bow. That's about it!

Be sure to hop over to the Sweet Stop blog to check out the sketch and the inspiration from the Sugar Babies: Nancy BrownRenata Elenbaas, Audrey Gonzales, Julie MasseKathy Page, Korin Sutherland, Andrea Vernagus, and Dana White.
