July Challenge - Distressed Patriotic Flowers

I was inspired to try a diagonal color blocked distressed background based on the patriotic mood board. This is my submission for the Creative Embellishments July Challenge.  Visit HERE to be inspired by the mood board.

The Artistic Stamper's July Creative Challenge is "Distress it!"
It can be interpreted any way you like, as long as it has rubber stamps on it.   As always, there will be candy for one randomly picked entrant The winner will receive a stamp of their choice from The Artistic Stamper. More guidelines to enter can be found HERE.
