Happy 4th and MSB Challenge #9

Today is time for another challenge over at MSB. This week we were given a choice of using Red, White and Blue -OR- Navy, Cranberry and Ivory along with any 4th of July type MSB image. I chose to use the Doodler USA image with Red, White and Blue.

The background paper I actually made myself by using a star template and sponging the stars in Real Red and Night of Navy ink and after those were done, I sponged over the white areas in the same two colors. Once the paper was covered with red and blue, I sponged over the entire thing with White Craft Ink to tone it down a bit. Since I didn't want to cover up all my hard work ;) I only added ribbon to the card before attaching my main image.

This card is also for the ABC Challenge (U is for United States)

I hope you all have a fantastic 4th! My family and I will be spending time with my parents and our neighbors this weekend ~ grilling out, playing with the kids and watching lots of fireworks!
