July Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti

Well, we are well into July and by now y'all know there's a new SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.  Surely y'all have already made a card using the newest sketch and submitted it for the "Fetti Fave" title and a $20 gift certificate to Reverse Confetti.  What?  You haven't?  Find all the info on how to play to win HERE

If you haven't entered yet, or if you're planning on entering again, let me show y'all what I created using the July Sketch for You to Try:

I followed the sketch pretty much to a "T" without going too abstract and straying too far from it.  It's my favorite way to go.  Why reinvent the wheel, KWIM? 

I used a sentiment from the new MY WORLD stamp set and mixed it perfectly with a die cut plane from the older HERE WE GO Confetti Cuts.  The green flag piece is from the STITCHED FLAG TRIO Confetti Cuts and I couldn't resist layering those banners from the LEAPING LIONS and the DOUBLE BANNER GARLAND Confetti Cuts dies.  All of this is layered on top of the fun chevron WEATHER OR DOT? (AND STRIPES) QUICK CARD PANEL, which made a great "jumping off" point for my color scheme on this card.  Another reason to LOVE those things! 

Ok, that's all from me today.  Yesterday was a doozie, so I'm taking it easy by the pool today with Jen and the kiddos.  Hope y'all find time to create today!


SUSIE Q-TIP:  I first had little white circles behind the three rhinestones along the left side.  I soon realized I needed some red to balance out my card in that area.  I pulled off the rhinestones and just punched 3 red circles and glued them right on top of the white ones so I wouldn't have to tear up my card and possibly start all over.  Just looks like a new layer and I meant to do that from the side.  Strategic mistakes.
