Spot the Mistake!


There's a sketch challenge over at the Mod Squad this week that I wanted to play along with. With Memorial Day being celebrated here in the states on Monday, I was in a patriotic mood and went with red, white & blue to make my card. I used a $1 wooden stamp from a bargain bin along with an old retired SU! sentiment. I embossed the background with a chevron ef in keeping with the pattern on the dsp strips, and added some blue & red gems along with some white mini brads in the pinwheel centers. There's a mistake on this card, can you find it? LOL I didn't notice it until I was editing the photo for posting........sigh :)

I hope your weekend is getting off to a great start today. I may have another post later on today if I don't get too busy around here! Thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning Carol. This card is just perfect the way it is. I had to look real long and hard before I figured out what you considered a mistake. and I'm still not sure I'm right, but if I am I consider it using your "Artistic License". It's a great card any way you look at it.
Have a fun day.
