Here is my take on the challenge.
The cute stamp I used is called "Oh Lucky Day" HMUR1017 - I received this adorable image from America (thanks America). This stamp is usually used for St. Patricks Day cards. I coloured the shamrocks red. Image is water coloured using Stampin Up reinkers. The little mouse is supposed to be waving a shamrock, but I replaced it with a computer generated American Flag. I cut out the flowers and mouse section (left off the shamrock he was waving) and placed it over a square that I sponged clouds onto. The flag is popped up. Matted image with navy and red. sewed edges. Main card is 5x5. I found the perfect r/w/b star dp to use. Ran the lower blue panel through the CB with Swiss dot folder. Added the red, white and blue ribbon. Sewed edges. Attached the white star brads in three corners. Cut out the stars in blue and white with cuttlebug die and the circle with nestability. Pierced holes in the circles out edges, Popped up the star.
Below is a close up of the image panel..
The wonderful sketch I used is from Mojo Monday - sketch #89 - contest.
