Freshly Made Sketches #91

Time for a new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  With Independence Day just around the corner, I made a July 4th themed card.  I put my stash of 6×6 paper pads to use for this one!  Just about everything on this card was made with the Summer Splash paper pack by My Mind’s Eye.  I am trying to actually use vs just collect the paper packs! I went off the original design just a tad with my banners, here is the original sketch for your interpretation-

My USA sentiment is part of one of the paper designs.  I cut it out with a circle punch and then layered onto my rosette.  For the rosette, I cut my cardstock into a 1″ x 12″ strip and then scored every 1/4″.  I assemble my rosettes with the help of a hot glue gun…..often my rosette comes unstuck hours later with my ATG gun.
