Celebrate Red, White. Blue

My talented friend Barbara Campbell is hosting a challenge at Stamp TV this week and I really wanted to enter. She wants us to use red, white or blue and add a star.  Since it is fun to enter more than one challenge, I went looking for some others before I made this card. I followed the sketch at MTF for one other challenge.  I used Gina K  Botanicals for the focal image.  The cover plate and star is MTF and the celebrate is from Cheery Lynn.  I put some of the white leftovers from cutting the cover plate and adhered them to the tag.  In retrospect, this competes too much with the background and something subtler would have been better. Perhaps embossing with a star embossing folder or stamping a background with stars or just left plain.  All in all, I like the festive colors.
