Thanks with Red Bows

A crisp, simple card with stripes, bows, and dots.  I like the contrast of lines and curves, and the red, white, and blue color scheme with a bit of kraft. 

I really wanted to include the red bows, but struggled with where to place them.  Then I thought of an off-center sentiment.  Problem solved.

This is my first card using some new linen-textured card stock from Ellen Hutson (one of my favorite stores on line).  It's lovely and thick with a very nice finish, and it printed beautifully for me.  Thanks, Ellen!
