Flourishes 'Flag it'

Boy was it hard to get up this afternoon - I had set my alarm for 1230 but 4 hours just wasn't enough - finally drug myself out of bed about 130ish.....
I made 2 pumpkin pies and checked mail (email and snail mail), ran to the dry cleaners and then managed to get this card done.
I did this card for the current FTTC challenge over at Flourishes which was to use a flag in your creation.
I don't have and flag or banner dies so I just cut this one free hand.
The main image is colored with prismacolor pencils and cut out with a Spellbinders labels die and layered to another Spellbinders die with the banner tucked inbetween.
The background was done with coredinations paper (white with a gold core) and a texture folder (and sanded off to reviel the gold...).
I am getting pretty good at useing up scraps lately - I had used the coredinations paper to cover a wedding themed gift box and then I used the left over pieces on a couple cards - this being one.
Last but not least I used some viva decor pearl pen in gold for accents. Oh yes the flag is the back side of the coredinations paper stamped with a phrase from another Flourishes set.
Check out the challenge here -
All for today - dinner to start and maybe some more craft table time....
Take Care
