Tiny Flags

Hi everyone!  Today's card uses the fabulous colors at The Card Concept along with the sketch at Seize the Sketch.  My style for this card would be Clean & Layered, I'm guessing.



I started out with the background panel which I'd sponged with distress inks and flicked with water.  I then white embossed the Tiny Flags stamp over the top.  I love how the aqua and lime inks blended to look yellow!  It's hard to see in the photos but I also stamped the flag background in Versamark on the White panel.

The horizontal panel gave me fits!  I tried so many different option but had to give up in the end and used this white embossed panel which I line up with the triangles in the main panel. 



The sentiment was cut twice in both colors then cut apart between the "thank" and the "you".  I then used the "thank" in Lucky Limeade and the "you" in Coastal Cabana.  




Thanks for visiting.

Dear Karren, I love your take on both challenges! Really interesting how you mixed together aqua and lime. This is an excellent idea to line up triangles on the front panel to the main panel!
