Required Element: Patriotic element - interpret this any way you like (ex. color scheme, sentiment, image, whatever)
Restricted Element: No ribbon
For my card, I went with red and white for my patriotic element. I recently picked up a pack of the metal rimmed circular tags, and I really wanted to use one, so I incorporated that into the card. For the interior of the card and the envelope I went with a stamped "swoosh" type pattern of the stars.
