Happy 4th of July

Happy Birthday America. It's a gorgeous day here in Chicago. Hope everyone is enjoying a lovely 4th of July.
My card today celebrates the holiday. I used the Designer Paper Starburst technique from the April/May 2013 Technique Junkies newsletter to make my background. It seemed like a perfect background for a 4th of July card. The stars are cut using a Sizzix die. All of the stamps used are from the Artistic Outpost stamp sheets, Heroes and She-roes.
This card is being entered into a number of challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown -- stars and stripes; Our Daily Bread Designs -- red, white, and blue; Creative Belli -- stars; Simon Says Stamp -- patrioticMarks Finest Papers Inspiration Challenge -- red, white, and blueInspiration Journal -- Happy Birthday, America; and Artistic Outpost Monthly Referral -- anything goes.
