God Bless America Flag created with Sue Wilson's Craft Dies

Hello Crafters!  I hope you've had a terrific weekend! To my American friends, I hope you've had lots of great FUN celebrating our Country's Birthday this fabulous Fourth of July Holiday Weekend! Here is another Patriotic Card! 
 
This one was created for today's SCS - Featured Stamper Challenge #FS439 - featuring JoAnn. I love how she uses dies and was impressed with her Easel Styles and lovely takes with Sue Wilson's Craft Dies (some of my absolute fave)... This is my first Easel card - ever - and I chose to go with creating my own flag background. Ive used Sue Wilson Weaving dies for the stripes and dandelion clocks finishing touches and pierced tags for the stars panel topping it off with a pierced flag cut to hold my sentiment from ODBD.
