Happy Wednesday everyone! It's been two weeks since the last Belli challenge so here we are again setting a new one for you! This week Creative Belli is challenging you to a sketch with a patriotic theme!!!


Stamps: Doodle Pantry (patriotic eagle)
sentiment-CG
Paper: SU! kraft, SU! night of navy
Other: SU! star punches, CB-cuttlebug emb folder,
fabric, navy seam binding, twine,

I had so much fun creating this card! Creative Belli encourages us to use our stash and that's just what I did here!
