UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge 6/30

Hi everyone!  I hope you are getting ready for a fun 4th of July Week!!!  It is always fun to have a holiday in the middle of the week, you get two fridays!  A little update on Mother, she fell on Tuesday and fractured her Sacrum (the bone between your tailbone and your spine).  She was in a lot of pain and the pain medications caused some complications that have led to her ending up in ICU.  She's really sick and we appreciate all prayers and good wishes!  She will bounce back from this but I feel so bad for her right now!

So on to my card for this week.  A little Patriotic card for you.  Here's the sketch:

Stamp Set:  Words of Courage

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

So last week I hinted that I had some good news.  Well, my former upline decided to become a demonstrator again and signed up under ME!!!!!!  Isn't that awesome???  I'm so glad to welcome Caron Scruggs back to SU and onto my team!  This promotes me to a Sr. Supervisor!

Okay, so on to this week's sketch.  I made this card for my sister to send to her son who is getting married.  We won't be able to go to the wedding as they are in Brazil so we wanted to make a very special card.  So here's the sketch:

and here's the card:

I used the following supplies to make this card:

Cardstock:  Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso
Ink:  Whisper White Craft, Daffodil Delight
Accessories:  Vintage Trinkets, Brights Designer Buttons, Neutrals Designer Buttons, Fancy Flower Punch, Early Espresso Bakers Twine. Simply Scored

I wanted the lines on the card to be yellow so after I scored them, I ran Whisper White Craft Ink over them.  I gave it just a minute to dry and then tapped my Daffodil Delight stamp pad over it and, Voila!, Yellow lines!

I hope you all have a great week!!!!!
