Baby You're A Firework Card

Ok, here is the last of my 4th of July, Firework, Patriotic, etc. projects for the year. I was not really sure where I was going with this card, then I started getting one idea after the next. The zigzag circle was cut from Cricut Art Philosophy at 3". I braided red, white and blue embroidery floss and looped it around my card and made a starburst in the same colors and tie it together on my braid. I used stickers and CTMH stamps to create my sentiment. The stamped image is from Close To My Heart and I colored it with Copic Markers and added some glitter gel pen to make it sparkle.

My card is based on this sketch:
