Inkspirational - A Sketch - Challenge #21

Nothing like waiting until the last minute huh?  I waited to create a card for the Inkspirational Challenge this week because I found it difficult.  The challenge is to create a card using this sketch:
 
 
Now don't get me wrong - I think the sketch is really neat!  But my MOJO seemed to have decided to take a week long vacation because I just could not come up with an idea at all!  So today was the day - If I was going to participate in this week's challenge, I needed to come up with something.  I decided to go a pit patriotic.  The first card I made I didn't like.  I liked the idea of it - but part of the "image" had an American flag and silly me - tried to color it with markers....and the little flag looked horrible after I was done.  So then I went to run some errands and came home and changed the image to just a sentiment.  I'm still not sure I really like it - but I like the idea behind it....red, white, and blue...and I love the sentiment.  But the picture didn't turn out great.  The blue base is actually a very dark navy blue.  The gems glisten too much because of the camera flash.  But when I took the picture it was raining so I couldn't take it outside and there was no way to take it inside without the flash going off - I tried all the settings.  Oh well. 
 
 
 
So did you get inky this weekend?  What did you create?
 
Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings to you today!!!!!

Yeah, when I made the sketch I was very happy with it and then when I had to make a card based on it, my mind went blank for a few days, too!!! I think this is fabulous, though! LOVE the patriotic take! Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational! :)
