Being Patriotic ...

Good afternoon, it's time for another challenge over at Crafting for all Seasons and this time we would like to see your Patriotic, Military or Fireworks cards, this is the card I have made:

I have used one of the sketches from Sketch n Stash - you get to use your favourite sketch this week.  The papers are a free download from Crafter's Companion (they were for the Royal Wedding last year - I don't think they are available any more) and the image is from Joanna Sheen's Faye Whittaker collection CD.  I punched the red, white and blue flowers with my Punch Bunch punches and secured them with brads.  The sentiment is a combination of stamps from LOTV and everything has been layered onto Core'dinations card stock.

This is the inside of my card:

We have three fab sonsors again this week:
