My Sheri Crafts Challenge 160-Patriotic

Happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts! This time we're calling out for your patriotic projects. July Fourth is almost here,so show us your pride!  I love making patriotic cards, I like to make them distressed and vintagey for some reason.
I used what is left of my Authentique "Glory" paper pad. It has to be hands down my favorite patriotic collection. The colors are just right and the papers are gorgeous. I purchased the cute vintage boy image from a shop on Etsy. There are so many neat image collages to buy there! My card is pretty straightforward in design. Kraft base and LOTS of layers that have been super distressed. I finished it off with a star fish tailed banner,some antiqued and crumpled red seam binding, and a cute glittered star for sparkle. The sentiment was stamped using one of my alpha sets.

  5. Kristi, I love your card! I do love the rustic look with the rough edges. I made mine to clean to call it rustic. LOL. I forgot I had one of those tools to do that with the paper edges. Awesome job!
