Sketch Saturday #58 & Penny Black #56...Red, White & Blue

Morning all, I have to start with a thank you to everyone who has asked about Sophie over the last couple of days...she is much better and she is returning to school today YAY! She told me this morning that she is 97% better than she was on's that for accuracy lol!

My card for today is for two challenges...Sketch Saturday (an extra option with their sketch is to use red, white or blue or star and stripes to celebrate July 4th) and Penny Black which is to use the same colours on your card! I've used one of my fav PB stamps which has been coloured with promarkers and then mounted onto some blue and red cardstock! The design papers were found on my PC and I think the red spotted paper is from a Carol Ann CD but please don't hold me to that lol! The sentiment is a digi download from Sweet Shoppe Designs and the kit is called All American! The flowers were created using my faithful X-Cut punch and the ribbon, gems and buttons are from my stash! I hope you enjoyed your visit today, I'll be round to visit you all later on this evening :)
