Red, White and Blue (and Yellow!)

I think I got a little carried away with all the stars on this! The image is from Dustin Pike and is for the current challenge which is:

Red, White and Blue

I've coloured the image with Promarkers and used a very generous clear out donation from Lynsey for the thin mulberry type red and blue papers. The buttons are from my stash and I've added Divine Twine from the Ribbon Girl to the centres. The larger stars have been cut with a Cuttlebug die and the tiny ones are a punch, again from Lynsey.

I've added a faux running stitch around the edge of the card and the sentiment is computer generated and I've used some Safmat from Letraset which, despite looking daunting to use on the packet was really simple! I've followed the current sketch from Digi Doodles Shop's Best:
