Edward USA Patriotic Card

Used BugABoo digi, Edward USA, to create this Patriotic Card. Colored the digi using Crayola pencil colors. Used a sketch which you can see below. 

Used the Tim Holtz Dimension Cutting Pad to give the image a 3D look. After popping up the image I cut strips of scrapbook paper; sliding 2 pieces behind the cut out part.

Added flag ribbon. Stamped the sentiment.
