Sweet Sunday Sketch #123

I'm running late this week, so I'll get right to it. It's Sunday and that means it's time for another fabulous Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. Here's a look at this week's sketch:


I pulled out some patriotic (and ON SALE!!) Verve and created a hybrid card for my sample this week:


That stamp set is Verve's American Hero - isn't it perfect for this time of year? And - it's 40% off through June 30th!! WOW!! I did some paper piecing on the firecracker and star. All of the patterned paper is printed digi paper from the 12 Months: July kit by Penny Springmann (Sweet Shoppe).

Be sure to stop by all the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs and see what they've done with this week's sketch. A few of the girls are taking the week off this week due to fun stuff, but stop by anyway - their blogs are always full of inspiration!
Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on today's post on Karen's Blog!
