A Dirty Challenge...God Bless America

Hi everyone!!!
Here is one of my cards for the June DD/DDA June Challenge, "Inside & Out"! Here are the deets on the challenge:

Challenge Focus: "Inside & Out"......stamp and decorate both the inside of your card AND the outside of the envelope. (any card size is ok) Please upload two photos.Required Element: Patriotic element - interpret this any way you like (ex. color scheme, sentiment, image, whatever)Restricted Element: No ribbonOptional - Send your card to the troops so that they can in turn mail it home to family or friends (all themes and occasions welcome). If you choose to do so, Beate has agreed to accept them and send them to her husband. Please include the envelope with the card and mail them to Beate.

So, for this card, I used A Banner Year from The Saltbox Studio. Instead of inking up the pineapple in the flag, I omitted it all together and drew in some lines to make a flag. I colored the flag and the bird with Prismacolor Colored Pencils & Gamsol.

The sentiment is computer generated, as I have realized that I am sadly lacking in any kind of patriotic stamp!!
Stamps: A Banner Year by The Saltbox Studio
