Penny Black Saturday #56!

Sorry for the late Penny Black Saturday challenge post today, I've been mega busy at work this week and I'm off to a BBQ now so it'll be a short one from me!
"Today is the 4th of July...Independence Day in the USA and on behalf of the Design Team
we would like to wish our American cousins "Happy 4th of July"
have a wonderful holiday weekend.
So onto this week's challenge which is a colour challenge
in honour of the American Flag....."The Stars and Stripes"
Here's the gorgeous stamp to can win too, courtesy of Sharni & Clair Stampin' Up demonstrators!

Here's my card! The only papers I had in these colours are these Christmas ones so that's what it had to be! I decorated the inside too but I'm not too happy with it! Oh well! I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Hi Beth, red white and blue looks great on a Chrissie card. I can't bring myself to think of Christmas until at least November! So well done you!
