Stars and Stripes vellum shaker card for Lawnscaping challenge

Hi again friends!
Stopping in quickly today with a card I created for the Lawnscaping Stars & Stripes Challnege.

I created a flat shaker card for this challenge. 
Starting off with my background, I created the stripes using painters tape as a mask. I cut small strips and adhered them on my panel evenly. i stamped the tiny star from the Party Animal set using a few different colors of blue, while my striped masks are still on I then went in and sponged some pool party ink, removed my strips on tape creating my stripes.
Once my background was finished I then sewed on a piece of vellum, leaving the top part un sewn.(you could use tape or adhesive instead as that area was being covered but I found my stars were getting stuck to the tape.) I then filled with my star sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and completed sewing the top of my vellum. I covered this area up with a frame I created simply using my paper trimmer.
I colored my cute little fox from the Party Animal stamp set on some watercolor paper and using the clean color real brush markers, I love so dearly right now as mentioned earlier this week. I then fussy cut this little guy out to adhere on my card.
Oh! I forgot to mention my sentiment! I highly recommend stamping it on vellum before you have it sewn and stars in the background, which I didn't think of doing at the time and left it to the end.Oops! Well it stamped ok:)

I love how this turned out, the stars in the background make me happy!
Thank you so much for stopping in!
