Patriotic Welcome Home Card

Hi everyone! I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th Of July holiday! We are celebrating with friends and taking in a fireworks show later. I whipped up this card last night after inspiration struck and it turned out just as I pictured.
Very rarely does a card pop into my head, so I listen to my muse when she whispers!

Here's what I used to make this card:

Kraft card Stock- Recollections
Patterned Papers-Authentique (Glory Collection)
Stamps- Just Rite (Large Fancy Sentiments,Fleur De Lis Labels Twenty)
Burlap ribbon- My Mind's Eye
Star Die Cuts- Cricut (George Cartridge)
Label Die Cuts-Spellbinders
Buttons,Baker's Twine- My Stash
Versafine Ink and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink

This card fits quite a few challenges this week:
Just Rite Friday Challenge
My Sheri Crafts
Die Cuttin' Divas
The Ribbon Carousel
Twisted Tuesday
Bitten By The Bug
Paper Playtime
Unique Crafters Challenge

Thanks so much for peeking and have a great day!
