OWH Mid-week Throwdown - Patriotic

The mid-week throwdown challenge over on the Stars & Stamps blog is to create a Patriotic card.I made this one using dsp from the BoBunny Liberty paper pad, along with a flag image and sentiment from an AMuse stamp set. I sponged the image panel with antique linen ink, added some red & white mini star brads on the corners, and another one to dot the "i" in the sentiment. The star border was done with a SNSS die, and I cut another one from the base layer dsp and swapped out the stars. This will be an "any hero" card for my next OWH box.

Thanks for stopping by!!

PS Comcast seems to be experiencing a major outage and my email has been down for most of the day. I'll catch up with comments whenever that starts working again :)

Carol, this card is just outstanding. This is probably one of the nicest Patriotic cards I've ever seen.

Patriotic cards are the best, Carol...and yours is no exception. I love that paper with the pretty flourish. Good way to dot those 'i's. I really like the border, too.
