Happy Independence Day week to Everyone

This week I wanted to create a card that would wish everyone out there a Happy "4th" of July week.  Also so many challenges this week have red, white and blue, stars, stripes and tags.  I have put this card in the following challenges:  JustRite StampersMy Sheri Crafts,  and Joan's Garden.  To make my card   I began with Authentique "Glory" papers.  Using my Cricut "United we Stand" the stars for this project were cut in a variety of sizes.  I made sure that stripes were on the stars and then again on the paper on the inside of the card.  Red, white and blue are through out the cad.  The stars on the front are similar to a tag, but then a tag was added to the inside of the card as well.  This is a regular A2 card with the front cut slightly smaller to allow the border to show from the inside.  I also decided to have the stars appear to be going off the card.  The sentiment is from JustRite Botanical Medallions set.  I decided not to stop there and went to work on the inside of the card too.  With this I added a stripped border and stars in red white and blue.  The tag is from the JustRite mini-sentiments set.  Memento ink was used for the sentiments a well as Distress Ink" Antique Linen on the tag on the inside of the card.Hope you enjoy.
