4th of July Cheyenne

Happy 4th of July for my American friends...happy Wednesday to the rest of you :)
in honor of the 4th I have made a lil patriotic card...or fat page...haven't decided yet :)

isn't she hawt? she is Cheyenne from Kenny K and I colored her with my pencils, then I diecut her out and followed the sketch at Smeared and Smudged...I took a brown paper bag and soaked it in Coffee to make it darker and I wrinkled it up then went around the edges with water and brown ink, then I took some cheesecloth and also put that in coffee and then some twine then painted my background red and added some jewels...cool huh?
I would also like to enter this in the following challenges:
Tuesday Alchemy: anything goes
Kenny K: Patriotic
MFP: red, white and blue
Craft Punked: Patriotic
Diva's by Design: red white and blue
Crafting for all Seasons: patriotic

It's great, I was wondering what you had used for the brown backing when I was looking at it in S&S, and now I know. I just wanna touch it it looks so textured :)

And good look with the Tuesday Alchemy Challenge, It's great to see you entering it there :D
