IO Challenge- Stars/Patriotic

Can you believe that July 4th is right around the corner?  I know that isn't a patriotic holiday for all around the world, but the American in me tends to break out a little red, white, and blue this time of year.

For my card, I first created a background with the Painted Stripes Cover a Card design using Cherry ink from Impression Obsession.  I thought the painted lines looked more like folk art/ old Americana. 

For the patriotic part of the card, I used various designs from the new Red, White, and Blue clear set.  I liked that it had banners, ribbons, stars, and sayings.  To color the images, I used a red and blue prismacolor pencilis and left the white areas blank to let the paper do my coloring.

Want more star/patriotic inspiration?  Don't forget to visit the other designers!

I like the background stripe you used on this card. Gotta love the Red, White, and Blue and that banner stamp is my favorite.

Like the red striped background layer as a setting for you more developed design. They go together so well. Thanks for sharing.
