Home of the Brave!

This post does a bit of multitasking! I wanted to create something with our special stamp set called Home of the Brave. The patriotic feeling is extra strong right now with Independence Day later this week! When I saw the colors for the Color Dare: Cranberry, Pacifica & White Daisy, I knew it was a good match for this set! Then I found this pattern from 
Freshly Made Sketches and the simplicity and soft curve felt just right! So off I went to put it all together!

I love the way the curve of the card design compliment the curves in the flag. The right side of the flag has 3D Foam to raise up just that end. It really helps makes it pop! I added some Red and Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel and some red, white and blue sparkles to make it nice and festive.
