As I formulated this card in my mind I thought, what if I flipped the sketch and used words to represent the flags. I had it all mapped out in my mind but the resulting card didn't look much like the sketch when I was done. But I did like it so much that I made 2 cards. I may need to revisit the sketch and follow it more closely as it is a fabulous layout.
This was the first card I completed but the idea to use the layered edgelits came to me as I was pulling out the supplies to make the second card below. I brushed Wink of Stella on the navy circle then layered the die cut pieces after I cut them with a circle die. A little dry embossing, thin border of navy and my word "flags" complete the card.
This card uses the same concept and colors as the first card but I added a little silver foil sheet. The dove is embossed in silver and a bit of navy marker accents the design. The leaves have a little Wink of Stella for a little shimmer.
