Tuesday Trigger with Retro Sketch



I loved the current Retro Sketch challenge layout and decided to pair it up with inspiration from the Tuesday Trigger photo.  Love the clean lines and the crispness of the navy and white together!  Then there's that kraft rug...ahhh...that was the inspiration for my embossed card base!  I brayered Crumb Cake ink over a plaid embossing folder then added white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot.  I wanted to add the stripe element, so I embossed a couple of the stars with a striped embossing folder.  The room has a cottage decor feel, so I added a little homespun touch by using the stitched rectangle die and then I stamped a cross-stitched border at the edge of the flag.  The little star on the sentiment was stamped twice, then I cut it out and popped it with a foam dot for dimension.  I also added a touch of glitter using a glue pen for the adhesive.

STAMPS: Shining Star (Verve), Borderline (Verve).
PAPER: Kraft (Recollections), Night of Navy, White, Silver glitter card stock by SU.
INK: Night of Navy, Crumb Cake.
ACCESSORIES: Plaid EF by Cuttlebug, Nautical EF by QuikKutz, Star Die-Namics by MFT, Flags STAX Die-Namics by MFT, Stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs, Brayer, Rhinestones, Dazzling Diamonds glitter by SU.

So glad you stopped by...I always appreciate your comments!
