America The Beautiful

Good morning and happy Sunday to ya! This afternoon my family is headed off to Manhattan (Kansas!) to enjoy a day of concerts! Most importantly we're going to hear Evidence of Journey. Awesome local and not so local folks!
Before we do that, I want to share with you my card for
this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge along with some challenge info!
Kris - my most awesomely talented friend
Psalm 46:10 "Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
Use flags/banners in your creation
  This week we have a grab bag of various stamps to offer one random winner! We also have our "Shining Star" for 3 of your amazing entries!
My card:

Things I've used:
Liberty Tilda; Copics; Prisma Colors; Stickers and paper by Echo Park; Flowers and brad from Michaels; Glossy Accents on the flame and stickles in various places.
Here's a close up of the torch and flame so you can see the glossy accents and some of the stickles:

Hope you've enjoyed and have a chance to join our challenge this week! I know you'll be blessed!
