Happy 4th of July!

I missed making a card for Canada Day, but I did manage to whip together one for the 4th of July using the latest color palette from the Paper Crafts Color Inspiration Challenge number six. The color combo features bazzill red, sea water, lily white and beetle black. I was able to match most of the colors, but couldn't quite get the exact tone of blue for the sea water. Here is what I came up with: 

I've become addicted to making harlequin/argyle patterns with my Papertrey Ink banner builder dies, so fun! After I made the pattern I ran some cardtsock through my crimper and punched small stars from it. Finishing touch was a sentiment stamped on vellum, attached using black brads.
