Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Stars and Stripes

We have another challenge for you this week at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! It's called "Stars and Stripes", but that doesn't mean it has to be red/white/blue! It can be any color you chose as long as there are stars and stripes in it.
Our sponsor this wee is Susannas Custom Art and Designs and she had made
available a sheeet of the new Victoria Chase Images to the lunck winner.

However, I chose to use red/white/blue for my card and Magnolia's #104, Baseball cap Edwin and #402 Rufus (the dog) along with #501 Shabby Chic Fence (which was a gift from a friend). All my images are available from Magnolia-licious.
