Stick It Down’s August Card Sketch

It’s time for another great card sketch (along with a single and double page sketch) over at Stick It Down.  This month’s featured card designer is me!  I love the whole Fancy Free line by Paige Evans and had great fun using my “scraps” to make this card.  And I finally found a use for the banner/pennant stickers I have had forever.  Be sure to check out Stick It Down‘s site for more inspiration throughout the month.  Here’s my card followed by the card sketch!

Hello!  Thanks for playing along with SID’s blog hop.  You should have arrived from Ali’s blog.  I am a bit low on pictures so I decided to make a card using my new Flashy Florals Stamps from My Favorite Things.  I am still loving the versatility of these stamps and dies and how everything coordinates so well!  Here is my card:
