This weekend and the next will be the last of the time for crafting before the movers show up.   I printed off a couple of sketches this morning and got busy.     I was going to do a MFT color challenge and went to grab some My Mind's Eye papers that I have that I knew had some of the colors in it.. but when I went to get it, I seen this Red, White & Blue paper and I got sidetracked... haha.  

I used this week's Operation Write Home Sketch #234 for this card.  I love lots of layers and shapes, so this was spot on for me.  

Here's the sketch I used:
