Missing you!

OK, all those wonderful patriotic cards on the OWH/OSH blog hop last week had me thinking patriotic. 
This card is very simple.  What was interesting to me was that I spent so much time hating it as I made it.  Everything seemed wrong until I switched the color of the back layer.  At first, I had it on the cream that I stamped the image and sentiment on.  Something about the card felt off, so I switched it to a burgundy that matched the strip of polka dotted paper and all of the sudden the image popped off the card.

I colored with Copics and Marvy Le Plume markers.  Gosh, I can't wait to replace the LePlumes- they're so streaky!  I used a white gel pen to highlight the flag's white stripes.

Stamps: Amuse (house) and Inkadinkado (sentiment)
Papers: I have no idea!  The stars were sold by the sheet at JoAnn.  The polka dots were in a pack from Ollies, maybe by Making Memories?
Punches: EK Success
