OWH Sketch 66 Challenge -- Easter Sunday

Happy Easter -- and thanks for all who stop by this blessed day.

Although today isn't really a red, white and blue day -- I felt patriotic today after I finished making potatoe salad and baking an apple pie (two of my husband's favorite things) so to keep the patriotic mood going  I made a patriotic card using today's sketch.



I enjoyed this sketch -- it is a good one for using narrow scraps of paper.
The sentiment stamps are from Stampendous - Freedom Squares.  The Eagle stamp is from the Stampin' Place.   I colored the eagle with Crayola pencils.  The wavey flags on ivory paper is from Scrap Happy.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
