A Perfect Thank You for July 4th Weekend

Hello everyone. I have a card to share with you that uses red, white, and blue colors, since this is the 4th after all. It is a Thank You card, and I got to use stamps from 2 new sets I just got recently. So I had lots of fun. Here is my card:

I have to say that I was happy with the way this turned out. I don't usually use these colors, and I'm definitely going to start using them now! I also was happy with my new stamp sets. The sewing machine is from the Stella and Rose "Mabel So Sweet" set from My Mind's Eye. I stamped it with CTMH's White Daisy Ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The ruler is from The Girl's Paperie "Paper Girl" set. I stamped it with the same white ink on red cs and also heat embossed it with white ep. The "Thank You" sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly and the rest of the sentiment are alpha stickers from Pink Paislee.
The card base is white with red and white striped paper by daisy d's adhered to it using my ATG Gun. (I love my ATG Gun, btw! lol) The blue and white striped paper is from We R Memory Keepers. I punched the right edge with a Martha Stewart punch. The red flowered piece is a die cut from my stash. I also added buttons (which I threaded with white floss)  and pearls from my stash.
I think you can tell that I distressed and inked the edges of the larger pieces of dp. I am entering this in the following challenges:

Scrapping Stamping Challenge Central - use red, white and blue
Crafty Creations Challenges - make a Thank You card
Tuesday Throwdown - use red, white, and blue

If for any reason these links don't work, you can find all of these listed in my sidebar. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Hope you all have a Happy 4th!
