Going Old School

The Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Creative Time was to  use a sketch for inspiration 

AND you could not use any of your Cricut tools. 



Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

I picked up this cute stamp at the local craft store. All clear stamps were 40% of this week- can you believe it. This little stamp set included Little Uncle Sam, Lady Liberty, 2 sentiments, a row of stars, a flag and a firework burst all for $2!!

Here's how I did it...
Base card is 5"x5"
Paper is from Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles 6x6 pack
EK border punch for Navy blue mat
Stamp and sentiment is Stampendous- Patriotic Pair
Stars are punched from the Creative Memories mini star punch
Tiny stars are from Creative Memories Star border punch
