City Crafter Guest Designer

The sweet girls over at the City Crafter asked me to be their guest designer for their current challenge! Here is the sketch:
 I have to tell you after making a couple of Glitz cards I totally struggled with this card. However, when I do that, rather than settle for a card I'm not happy with I just keep playing until I'm satisfied. I kind of struggled with my color palette, plus I just so wanted to use this little flag banner! I got this idea from Alice and I just love the flexibility it brings to the My Beach House set!
Stamps: (My Beach House) Practicing Creativity
Ink: (VersaMark) Tsuekino, (Aqua Mist) Papertrey Ink, (Moulin Rouge, French Lilac) Pallette
Cardstock: (Lipstick Red, Purple) Gina K, (Solar White) Neehnah
Ribbon: (Seafoam Linen) May Arts

So come play along with the City Crafters Challenge!
