Grand Old Flag

Here is one last card I designed for the 4th of July.  I used a vintage flag/verse stamp in navy ink.  I found the stripe/star card stock at a local craft store.  I cut it to the size of my card base, glued down and the distressed the four sides with the nave ink to make it more vintage.  I matted the stamped image on red card stock and distressed the sides as well.  I pleated Stampin' Up! red striped ribbon to resemble flag bunting at the bottom of the card.  I also added the bakers twine around the bottom for some texture to the card.  After it was assembled, I spritzed the card front with shimmer spray.  You can see the spray in the close up picture.   Let me know your thoughts!!!  Enjoy our country's birthday!!!
