Cards in Envy Stripes

Happy 4th of July!  The new challenge on the Cards in Envy blog is "Stripes" any kind, any theme.  I chose to make my card with the Stars & Stripes for this special holiday!

Crafty Colonel Donna Nuce for Cards in Envy Challenge Blog, Rubber Cafe flag stamp, CTMH Home of the Brave and Kaboom
The flag stamp is Rubber Cafe.  I stamped in black and heat embossed in clear so it was easy to watercolor with Distressed inks.  I made a mask over the flag and stamped the fireworks in VersaMark and heat embossed them with Zing Red Glitter EP. (too bad glitter doesn't show up well in photos - those fireworks really sparkle)  The sentiment is stamped in black and heat embossed in clear. 

Come on over to the Cards in Envy blog and see the rest of the Design Teams striped cards.  The upload your striped card to the challenge.  

I'm adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Red, White & Blue.

God Bless the USA!
