Good morning and welcome to my Wednesday DT posting for Isabella's Sketchbook. This week we are challenging you to make a Memorial Day weekend card. In the US, Memorial Day weekend kicks off our summer season. So your card can be for the USA's Memorial Day or just inspired by something that you would do on a summer weekend. I combined both inspirations with this charming summer picnic image from Isabella's Sketchbook along with enough red, white and blue to make it a patriotic card. And just for good measure, I threw in a couple of stars and the chipboard USA letters. The VFW post in my neighborhood still sells crepe paper poppies every Memorial Day as a fundraiser and to remind us of the sacrifices made by brave men and women on our behalf. So to tie it all together, I added a red crepe paper flower.
The details: Image by Isabella's Sketchbook, base is Real Red, followed by Whisper White that had been run through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The red bandana print DP is from Designer Digitals as is the blue bandana print that I used to paper piece the tablecloth (done digitally). The image was colored with Copics and colored pencils. The DP I used to cover the chipboard is ancient Creative Memories paper. The frence punch is from Marth Stewart and the red gingham ribbon is from SU. Daisies embossed on the fence was also a Cuttlebug EF.
I hope you will take the time to stop by Isabella's Sketchbook challenge this week. And while you're at it, stop by the blogs of the rest of the team members. There is talent oozing out of every pore on this team so it is well worth your time.
I hope you will grab an Isabella's Sketchbook image and join in the fun with us this week!
Blessings & hugs,
