Bold & Bright: Thinking of you

Happy Friday...FINALLY!!!! I didn't think this week was ever going to end...sigh.
There's only a couple of days left and I want to squeak in a 2nd entry for the Paper Sweeties sketch challenge.
What a fun and versatile sketch!! Thinking I'll add this cutie to my list of go-to faves :)

I knew right off that I wanted to make the vertical panels on the sketch using my mucho loved DeNami chevron border and that I wanted to use a bold sentiment ('s on sale!) that would draw your eye. However, the rest of the card was kind of trial and error. I wanted to include something from Paper Sweeties of course so I looked through my ever growing stash and saw the cute little flag in the Fun Shapes set and knew that it would be perfect! I was browsing through my ink pads trying to come up with a color scheme when I decided to again go bold and pulled out the purple / turquoise color combo I used on this card for the blog hop a couple of weeks ago. Let me tell ya, I was way worried about ya'lls reaction to that color combo but you gals are so awesome and said such sweet things about it...thank you :)
Here's my little card...
I never do this, but I'm going to have to pat myself on the back for this little creation. I'm totally feeling it. The colors are bold & bright and really lend themselves to the bold chevron and sentiment. Then you have such a contrast from adding the flags with that tiny little sweet design...It all just makes the card "pop". I hope you like it as much as I do!!
I'll see you back here Monday with the DeNami Addict newsletter. There's going to be a lot going on for the month of July!!!
