Red, White & Blue

This is a weekend of recognizing & celebrating our country's independence, so a number of challenges are promoting this theme. My card is for the following challenges:
Card Patterns Sketch
Our Creative Corner - use either 4th of July or Christmas in July theme.
Friday Mashup - use red, white & blue OR use a patriotic theme OR mash it up and use both.
I used direct to paper technique and applied red and brilliant blue ink to the stamp, then stamped on rustic cream CS. I ran it through the Big Shot using a stars EF. A very quick and simple card!
STAMPS: Grunge Cirque by Tim Holtz
PAPER: Yankee Doodles by We R Memory Keepers, Rustic Cream (PTI)
INK: Real Red, Brilliant Blue
ACCESSORIES: Ribbon, Star button, Stars EF by Sizzix.
