Uncle Sam for the 4th

Hello! Today I am back to the appropriate season....getting ready for the 4th of July. Actually I made this card and more of the same for OWH for Any Hero cards.  Earlier, I had made a similar design at my Stamping Club which Shelly had made the kits for our meeting.  With this card I used Spellbinder dies - circle, scallop circle, square- to make Uncle Sam. Shelly used SU punches for her design which I do not own.   I cut the hat brim and rounded the corners with a corner punch.  Shelly had used the SU word window punch.
Other supplies:
Papers: Red, White, Navy CS
Stamps: Verve American Hero Stamps
Ink; Memento Paris Dusk
Black Pen and Pink Pencil
Stripe Ribbon from stash
EF: Cuttlebug Stars and Bubbles

Challenges:
Open-Minded Crafting Fun: Challenge  Patriotic Colors
City Crafter Challenge Blog: Red, White, and Blue
Die Cutttin Divas: Challenge - I vow thee to my country -inspired by the country you live in.
 Paper Pretties: Challenge is Red, White and Blue
Simon Wednesday: Says Anything Goes

What are your plans for the 4th? I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
