It's a Sketchy Challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas!

Wow, it's only a couple days before the 4th of July, Oh my!
I'm still looking for the month of June! 

Well, today is the start of another weekly challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas. This week we have a sketch for you to try. So because I have been in the red, white and blue mode, my card has a 4th of July twist to the sketch. 
Here's the inspiration sketch
I know many of you have been using the washi tape, and though I have a few, well many, rolls of it, I think this is only my second project using it. The red stripes of paisley behind the buttons are done with the washi tape. 

Now how about that super cute Uncle Sam die cut from SVG Cutting Files. Does he look familiar? Over the weekend I posted a treat favor using him as well and it doesn't stop there.  I have another project or two lined up using him later this week. 

I finished the card with a sentiment from My Creative Time, a couple buttons and some twine. Be sure to jump over to the Die Cuttin' Diva website to see what my DT pals have created for you as well.
