You're my Hero - Stars & Stripes

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are enjoying the weekend, we just got home from Church and are getting ready to go watch a ball game but I wanted to post a card I made for some challenges. I tried using some non-traditional colors to make a patriotic stars & stripes card. 
Hope you all have a SUPER day!
