SNSDC64 - So Happy For You

It's Friday and that means it's time for another challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog.  Our challenge this week is to use flags or pennants on our projects.



I chose to use the new pre-colored Kiwi Koala image.  I think Kiwi is adorable and the watermelon slice makes it a perfect summer image.  I really like the criss-cross card and found this "cheater's version" that only uses 1/2 of a piece of 8.5" x 11" cardstock instead of the whole sheet.  Christine David's no waste criss-cross tutorial can be found here.


The flag was made with a simple toothpick and a scrap of cardstock.  The faux stitching was done with a journaling pen.

Supplies:  
Cardstock:  Recollections, Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  Jillibean Soup (Blossom Soup)
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Kiwi Koala's Watermelon Colored Digi, Hummingbird with Scripture)
Embellishments/Tools:  Brad (MM), Ribbon (misc from stash), toothpick, EK Success Corner Rounder, CM Fine Tip black pen

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Paper & Such - Just Stitch It (real or faux)
Shopping Our Stash #61 - Something New (the digi is a new release and the first I've used it)
Crazy for Challenges C4C146 - Stitching Real or Faux
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
52 Card Pickup - Make a card

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you'll play along with us this week.  I'm keeping this short today because we're enjoying an unexpected visit from our son and his family.

Stephanie, I love your card! This is such a great fold complimented by the papers and little embellishments, not to mention you used my all time favorite image. It's terrific.
