Crafting for all Seasons #4 card 1

Where are the weeks going to! It's another new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons today and the theme is red, white and blue - we love to see your creations so what are you waiting for lol. Many thanks to all those who created such wonderful projects for our summer challenge - you didn't make it easy for us to choose a Top Three!
We are sponsored by 2 cute stamps and all the design team got to choose a stamp to work with, I chose Original Cowboy Kid and this is my card:

Image is coloured with promarkers then mounted onto a scalloped nestie square cut from the back of an old file. Backing paper is from a DCWV adhesive stack. Card is finished with a raffia bow (off a present), a star  and a sentiment (both of which I've had forever).

Many thanks for looking today and do please pop over to the rest of the Design Teams blogs to see what delights they have in store for you.
