Welcome to another FUN CHALLENGE at AI FACTORY!  This week our challenge is RED, WHITE & BLUE and the DT got to play with clip art, YAY!  I have to say that I don't use a ton of clip art, although I do own a fair amount, and I REALLY ENJOYED using it this week.  If you have not tried it yet, I would definitely recommend it:) 

So, for this week's challenge, use RED, WHITE & BLUE on your card and then head on over to AI FACTORY CHALLENGE BLOG to link your project.  Some other places you may want to stop along the way include, AI FACTORY STORE, where you can find a WONDERFUL selection of images and FREEBIES.  Remember, while it is not necessary for you to use an AI FACTORY image for your project, we'd LOVE to see one:)  Finally, you should come hang out in our AI FACTORY COMMUNITY where you can chat, get sneak peeks of new images, meet the DT and lots of other fun stuff.
Now, onto my project.  I used Bazzill red textured CS for base.  I made the 2nd layer by taking SU glossy paper and running 2 colors of Adirondak alcohol ink over it using my cotton tool from Tim Holtz (don't remember what it's called).  I then ran the paper through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug EF of stars.  AI FACTORY clip art is cut out using nesties.  SU Brilliant blue CS and SU ribbon are underneath flag image, which is daubed with kaleidacolor red ink.  I hope you like this, I'm really pleased with how it turned out:)

This card also is for the following challenges:
SKETCH AND STASH CHALLENGE - sketch plus ribbon and inks from my stash
CAARDVARKS - embossing
CRAZY CHALLENGE - make card in an hr. (or less)
and CRAFTY CARD MAKERS - use ink other than markers.
