Fourth of July Cards with CAS Sketch

I really liked the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches Blog this week and made a handful of 4th of July cards using the sketch.

Here is the first card:

Close to My Heart products used:
      White Daisy CS
      Pacifica CS
      Cranberry Ink
      Indian Corn Blue Ink
      Home of the Brave stamp (retired)
      Starburst Fireworks (retired)
      Ruby Mini Accents Medley twine
      Shin Han Touch markers--Turquoise Blue and Golden Yellow

Other products:
      Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
      Happy 4th of July greeting created in Microsoft Word with Lucida Bright font

This is the sketch that I followed:

The first card had a stamped background.  The next few cards use retired patterned paper from the Independence Day or Blue Ribbon set.

Do you have a favorite card?  

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
