Congratulations, Aga!

My Polish friend, Aga, became a US citizen yesterday and i wanted to make her a card to help commemorate this event in her life.  I spent the morning/early afternoon creating this for her.  I wish i had known before the even happened, but i didn't so this will be sent after the fact.

Here is my card:
For this card, i have used a Nellie Snellen star die set, it's available at Dutch Paper Crafts. I also used some flowers from Wild Orchid.  My MS leaf punch and a flag button from my stash.  I also used Tilda with Jolly Roger..i love the stripes and thought they'd work with the flag/USA theme i was going with.  I used Magnolia's DT Zoe's tutorial from Magnolia Ink..she is so clever.  I can't believe she can make fabric folds using striped fabric.  This was my second attempt at making this image..i think i liked my first attempt better, but this isn't bad?  I am going to include an image of the stamp, so you can see how it looks when stamped.  Oh and i cut off the pirate flag so that i could add the USA flag.
