Deconstructed Sketch with Patriotic Tim Holtz image

Today I have for you another in the series of Independence cards I made this past weekend.  Here is another where I really played around with the background.  The red card stock was just a little too plain.  So I spritzed with my homemade red spray (a mix of smooches and ranger) then I sprayed with Goosebumps clear texture spray.  I chalked all the edges with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Blue Moon.  I have the Tim Holtz image matted in the center and I added Prima glitter and satin flowers with Queen & Co pearl and twinkle goosebump bling for the centers.  I found some random paper leaves to distress and add.

Here's the sketch:
