Patriotic Rose With Balloon

I created this patriotic card using Rose With Balloon from CC Designs.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens.

 I added blue jean stickles to her belt, headband and socks and then added christmas red stickles to her skirt and heart on her headband. For the embossing I used a star embossing folder from The Paper Studio and the punching is a star border punch from EK Success.  The stars are glitter buttons and I layered a red ribbon onto a white satin ribbon and made a bow from the white satin ribbon.
