Die Cuttin Divas October Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another sketch challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas! I had so much fun working with this sketch.  I usually change them up a bit to really make it my own project.  I knew exactly what I wanted to make and it came together perfectly!  Here is the sketch:
and here is my take on it:

I decided to think about my almost 7 year olds birthday.  He is really into 'army' and camouflage so I thought this was right up his ally!   I used George and Basics for the stars.  Just cut regular rectangles for the background papers and used Christmas for the 'banner'.  I actually just enlarged the ribbon cut on the Christmas cartridge and used 1 of the tails of it!  Worked perfectly!  I also embossed the camo paper with D'vine Swirls.  I inked the edges and finished it off with some doodling.  I think he is going to love it!

We'd love to see how you interpret the provided sketch!  Submit your cards HERE for a chance to win a great prize!!!


  1. This is such a great boy card! I love the patriotic theme of it and how you positioned the "happy birthday" in the cuts. Great job!
