CAS Stars and Stripes

Good morning!  I was digging around in the basement for a stencil and found this fun Stampendous stamp instead; I abandoned my original idea and thought I better get busy with this instead as the 4th is just around the corner!

I simply stamped my image, colored it with pencils, added some CS strips, and finished with glitter.  As I was finishing up, I had a few ideas for improvements, but I was out of time....  LOL  Isn't that the way it usually works?!

Image: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, Doodlebug Sugar Coated CS
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellie: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust"
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone

I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

I am always in awe when I see something so absolutely perfect like this and it's so CAS but powerful. This really works and doesn't need a thing. I wish I could do CAS well but I do mess it up.

Thank you so much for participating with us at Opus Gluei on our challenge. Really terrific and I hope you come back to play with us again!
