Freshly Made Sketches #94

Linda has a great CAS sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  The moment I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to use some bold background paper.  The papers in the new Sarita paper pack were perfect for the occasion!  You could easily change out the sentiment to make this a card for any occasion.  Here is the original sketch design-

I  kept the inside clean as well, just adding a strip of the same background paper along the bottom!

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1534 Patterned Pennants Stamp Set
X7171B Sarita Paper Pack (avail 8/1/13)
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
Z1853 Aqua Dots (avail 8/1/13)
Z2502 Enchantment Pigment Inks
Z821 Clear Embossing Powder
BV29 Copic Sketch Marker

Design Tip: The Aqua Dots do not come in Outdoor Denim, I colored one of my dots with a Copic Sketch marker for the Outdoor Denim color.  My sentiment was inked with Outdoor Denim pigment ink and clear embossed.

I have entered my card in the following challenge:
