I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July here in America. We were able to watch quite a few great displays of fireworks the last couple of days and the kids loved it. 
And now I'm back today with a card sketch I designed for Sketch-N-Scrap.
I've just purchased the Concord & 9th Orange You Sweet stamp and die set and I was so ready to play with it. It's such a versatile set, I see myself using it a lot in the future for some great cards.

Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash Sketch #4

Today I have the 4th special sketch for SNS's 5th Birthday Bash.
This whole card started with the red wood grain banner. I had previously cut it out for something else that I never used it on. With the sketch in hand I was determined to make that precut banner work. I paired it with some other papers in my scrap stash. The banner is from Claudine Hellmuth and the stamp is from Sizzix.
