Patriotic Soldier Boy

This card was inspired by all of the stars and stripes/Patriotic challenges this week. The sketch is this week's Paper Craft's challenge. I started with a blank card and stamped it with gold stars using an old Stampendous wood stamp and ColorBox gold pigment ink. I next layered it with navy blue striped designer paper. One piece I also stamped with the gold stars, and the other I punched out in a circle and embossed using my Cuttlebug script folder.  The next layer is a strip of red Colorbok paper followed by the flag which was cut from a piece of Paper Love Designs dp. Next I cut an oval out of gold metallic paper using my nestabilities. I then used Stamping Boutique's soldier digi image and colored him with Copics and then cut him out and popped him up using dimensionals. I finalized it by adding these two cool blue and white buttons.
