Sweet Stamps Patriotic Summer Theme

This week the challenge at Sweet Stamps is : 
Patriotic Summer

Remember, you can only enter the challenge one time, those using Sweet Stamps images will get an extra drawing in the challenge. Please limit the amount of challenges to 10 (including ours)  You must link back to us in your blog post.
I used the following supplies:

I started with this set
 Holiday Sweets Set S006P
I know it is a Christmas set but it really worked for me to design a background.

Then I could stamp my carousel horse and also my floral frame. Then all I had to do was cut out the images and attach to a base card.
 After fussy cutting I pop dotted and added to an embossed star background I triple matted.
I had some great ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon that is part of the this months ribbon of the month.
Didn't the background work great for this stamped and fussy cut horse design?
I had such a great time finally getting to play this week, convalescing at home has been a hard time for me. Glad I could get down to my craft cave for a short time and make this project.
So won't you play along with us this week?
