Red, White & Blue Birthday

I created this birthday card today using Boobie Love from Saturated Canary. The sketch I used is from this week's challenge at Papertake Weekly.  I rotated the sketch. 

 I started with a dark red card base.  I added a piece of striped card stock that I backed in white.  I cut a strip of navy blue dotted patterned paper and backed it in white.  Then I added it to strip of dark red card stock and then backed that in white.  I added that across the middle of the card.  I cut a strip of red star patterned paper and backed it in white.  I cut using scallop scissors along one of the edges and added it going down one side of the card.

I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I wanted to use the image without the ribbon showing on the shirt.  So how I did this was that I colored the shirt completely in navy blue and then punched a tiny white star and added it to the center top of the shirt. I cut the image out in an oval and backed it in dark red and then again in white. I cut around the white using scallop scissors. I added foam squares and added it to the center of the card. 
I punched 3 mini hearts out of dark red and added them to the side of the image. I added a white flower to the top corner of the image and 3 more at the bottom corner.  I added a burgundy pearl to the center of each flower.  I added 3 white pearls to the top corner of the card.  Then I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock and backed it in dark red and then again in white and added it onto the strip of star paper.  I added crystal stickles to the 2 smaller white stripes on the background paper, the dots on the navy blue strip, the white edges on top and bottom of the navy blue strip and to the star on her shirt.
