Karen's Doodles Design Team Call

Karen's Doodles is having a design team call!!  They are looking for 5 new Doodle Princesses!! How cool is that!! When I read about this I knew that I had to take a chance and enter.  I absolutely love the cuteness of Karen's images. So you can imagine how excited I would be to have an opportunity to create for such an amazing artist. So with a huge goofy grin on my face and my fingers crossed I am entering this card into the Karen's Doodles Design Team Call.....

I decided to use two of Karen's images on my card, Parade Day Girl and Parade Day Boy. Aren't they just the cutest! Getting ready to celebrate the 4th and thanking the soldiers for all they do for us. The sketch that I used is from Sweet Sunday Sketch

I used red cardstock for the base of my card.  I cut two squares out of navy with stars patterned paper and backed them in white. I added one to the upper left corner and one to the bottom right corner.  I colored the image using colored pencils and backed it in red and then again in white. I added it to the middle of the card. I backed the thank you sentiment in navy blue and then again in white.  I finished off the card by adding three white stars with blue gems to the upper right corner.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
