Getting Patriotic with Whimsical Wednesday Challenges

There's a new challenge starting today on the Whimsical Design blog.  Yes, it's Whimsical Wednesday already!  This week's theme is "Getting Patriotic" and it's sponsored by Eureka Stamps.

With July 4th and Canada Day just around the corner, now is a great time to start on those Patriotic projects.  Here's what I made for the challenge:

The star shaped flag is a digi stamp from Eureka stamps, colored with Copic markers.  The star shaped card is a download from the Silhouette store, found here.  I did a masking technique to get the "Let's" and "Celebrate" sentiments separate from each other, and then cut the stamped images into the fishtail shape.  They are from the Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiment stamp set.

I cut the card out at 5 inches, using Close To My Heart tulip cardstock.  I added some UmWow Studios star confetti chipboard for the finishing touches.
You have two weeks to get those patriotic projects made.  I want to see them on the Whimsical Designs blog!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations Paints -- Red, White, and Blue challenge
Sister Act Card Challenge -- anything goes
Pin and Tack -- Spark your Creativity Now Challenge -- anything goes
