Stars and Stripes

It's impossible to believe that another month is ending.  I'm finally posting my submission for the Artistic Outpost monthly referral challenge which is anything goes this month.
The stamps on my card are from the Heroes and She-roes sets of Artistic Outpost stamps. I used the watercolor marker stamping technique on watercolor paper for my images. The layout is based on the current Mojo Monday sketch for round or square. In addition, I'm entering the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is seeing stars.
I think that the recent inauguration activities and the upcoming Presidents' Day holiday influenced my choice of stamps for my card.  A little patriotic tribute is never out of order.
