A Patriotic Panel for USA Flag Day 2015

Happy Sunday Crafters! I have created a new Patriotic card in honor of USA's FLAG DAY today. This National Holiday is full of tradition. Read more about it HERE!

My card was also for the Inspirational Challenge IC497, over at SCS and it was inspired by this fun Shabby Creek Porch image
 Beach Cottage porch
I added textures and used different dies for; the stripes to represent the red and white stripped pillow, the diagonal panel to represent the bench/fence lines and the star to represent that big blue star on the wall.

Stamps: NONE
Paper: Double sided Metallic Blues CS, MM Red, Heavy White CS
Paper Size: 5x7
Accessories: Frantic Stamper Star Card panel die FRA-DIE-09412, Spellbinder Star Dies, Creative Expressions dies by Sue Wilson; Diagonals -Labyrinth, Striped Weaving Dies, Rhinestones
Techniques: Dry Embossing, Layering

I've used these fabulous
