H2H Freedom Layout

Good morning. This is just a quick post today before I head to work.

I made the following layout with Skylark papers and added in some cranberry and creme brulee cardstock for a fun twist. This was part of my Skylark workshop this past Sunday, and it was a big hit.
I used an older Scrapbook Generation sketch. Where you see my embellishment clusters, the sketch used stars. There are so many ways to interpret a sketch. The pennant banners worked perfectly as stripes on our flag. 

I have to point out that the embroidery floss I used to stitch with comes from a floss box I have had since I was 12 years old and used to make friendship bracelets. Each floss bobbin was neatly wrapped and labelled even back then, and only the best embroidery floss was ever purchased. :)

Paper: Skylark, Cranberry CS, Creme Brulee CS, White Daisy CS (CTMH)
Stamp: Kaboom (retired) (CTMH)
Inks: Cranberry, Lagoon, Creme Brulee (CTMH)
Tools: Cricut Art Philosophy, Cricut Artbooking, Micro-Tip Scissors, Paper-Piercer (CTMH)
Other: Grey Twist Ties, Foam Tape (CTMH), Yellow Embroidery Floss (DMC)

I am entering this into Heart 2 Heart Challenge "Up, Up and Away".

Have a great day, my friends!
