Put the flags out

Using sketch 181 from cleanandsimple and the colour combo of red, blue, vanilla and crumb cake from simply stampin.

I made my own checked background using the stripes embossing folder and inking it with first Baja Breeze, then rotating the cardstock 90 degrees and doing the same with Poppy parade ink.  For more on this technique see here!  I didn't use any crumb cake cardstock ( I like the LIM look) but the linen thread is the same colour so I hope that counts!

Thanks for popping by! 

SU inks:  Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze
SU cardstock: Very Vanilla
SU stamp: Outlined Occasions
SU other:  Stripes Embossing Folder, linen thread, Pennant Punch
