Yankee Doodle Dandy

I created this patriotic card using Parade Day Boy from Karen's Doodles.  I used the sketch and red, white and blue challenge at Karen's Doodles Netherlands.  The base of my card is white backed in red.  I punched a strip of navy blue using a star border punch. I added a strip of white cardstock behind the stars and then added a strip of red cardstock at the bottom of the navy blue.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I cut the image out in an oval and then backed it in red.  The sentiment that I used is a rubon that I added it a block of white cardstock and then backed it in red. To finish off the card I added some red, blue and silver glittery pillow star stickers.  On the larger stars I added a smaller silver star to give it a little more dimension.
