Red, White and Blue with Uncle Sam

At Stamp TV, Tina had a color challenge for red, white and blue.  At Just Us Girls, Lisa had a color challenge also for red, white, and blue with kraft as an optional color.  I pulled out this old stamp bought at a garage sale and used for the first time. Thought Uncle Sam would make a great patriotic card.  Stamped it on white CS and colored with markers, white pen, and gold glitter pen. Cut with nesties. For years, I  have saved some clear cello printed with white stars that I used to cover the mat of red CS. Used white base card  and a navy mat. Assembled card following sketch challenge from Stamping 411.  Added a trio of ribbons.
Have you made plans for Memorial Day Weekend?
Thanks for dropping in.
