Independence Day must still be in the air, because everywhere you turn on blogdom there seems to be a challenge running using red, white and blue as their theme. I'm sure I could dig around and find more that this fits, but I'm going to stick with sharing with the places I saw before I sat down to create this: All Sorts and Raise the Bar. Both of them are using 4th of July color schemes as part of their challenges.
As for the sketch I followed it is the new one just posted over at Frosted Designs. I try not to play favorites, but this is a really awesome sketch and I am most definitely going to have to use it again. I'm a sucker for circles in my layouts and this paper just screamed out 'fussy cutting' to get the ring elements. All of the paper is from Bo-Bunny's Liberty line. The embellishments are just some left overs in my stash. The glitter letters are Thickers and the smaller letters are Cosmo Cricket.
