State colors for MidWeek Throwdown

WOOT! WOOT!  GO ARIZONA!  GO OWH!  While researching State colors, I discovered that the State of Arizona has the BEST flag to make a card out of!  AND it had a pattern I could use a method on - - - that I had been itching to try!  So--- here is my card - and below it I will talk about the method!  Also - thanks Jan!

Before I continue - - - I was born in Brooklyn, NY!  I moved to Arizona in 1969 and except for 10 months in Richmond, VA - I have been here since. I hope you like this card!  I had an absolute blast making it.  I used the masking technique to create the rays - Staz-on Sunflower Yellow rays!  I used a dauber to apply the ink - but it would have been easier with the distressing tool.  The white paper I used is Stampin Up Whisper White - which takes ink beautifully.  I embossed stars on only part of the navy paper because I wanted the rays to be the focal point.  I think the red star and the brad grabbed that focal point.  I enjoyed making this state color card so much!  And I am equally honored to make it for OWH MidWeek Throwdown! 

Please play along with this weeks MWT so I can go see your state colors in use, and see how you interpret them.  I can't wait!
