Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 23, Day 2

Hi Again My Peachy Friends, Welcome to my second day as the guest DT here at Peachy Keen Stamps.  I am so excited because today Peachy Keen has a sketch challenge for you.  You can read all about it here.
Did you know that here in the USA June 14th is Flag Day? In 1885, 108 years after anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as our flag, a teacher  right here in Wisconsin, arranged for his class to have a "Flag" Birthday Party. Sixty four years later, in 1949, President Truman signed an Act of congress designating June 14th of each year as the National Flag Day
"Happy Flag Day Everyone!"

I created this card following this weeks sketch in honor of this celebration and Betsy Ross the seamstress who is believed to have made the first flag.
Here is  sketch.

The stamp set I used was PK490 Everyday Character Faces Assortment. It is a must have if you have the Cricut cartridges Everyday Paper Dolls or Paper Dolls All Dressed Up. It also works great for flowers and suns and, well, just about anything.  This is a great first set.

Materials Used
Stamp: PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment
Sentiment: SP& Company Stamps
Cricut cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder "Stars"
Ink: Memonto
Paper: SU
Ribbon: SU

Remember to enter to win PK-288 Skunk.  Leave a comment here and at the Peachy Keen Blog all five days.

Don't forget this week Peachy Keen  is having a Customer Appreciation Week. Check it out! 

Have a great Tuesday and thank you so much for all your sweet comments. They mean a lot to me.
