This stampset was in last years Holiday catalog and I am very glad they carried it over into the 2013-2014 Annual catalog. I got a lot of use out of the Christmas stamp but it was time I used one of the other stamps. I had this sketch pinned on Pinterest and thought I would be able to "whip" up a card. It took some time for me to figure out how to do the bow but I am as happy as I am going to be. I struggle with the new chevron ribbon when it comes to tying it in a bow. If anyone has some ideas I would love to see them!!!
To add a little dimension to the flags I used a sponge and sponged the edges of each flag. It helps them to pop out a little so they don't bled into the background DSP as much.
Thank you Try Stampin' On Tuesday for your sketch!

Sorry the picture isn't as great a quality but when I got home from volunteering at the foodbank tonight the sun had already. This meant I couldn't take my photo outside which usually helps the picture to turn out better. Hopefully I will be able to get some good photos outside tomorrow.
