Happy 4th of July Card

Hello again everyone! I'm back today with a quick post and a happy Fourth of July card. I colored The Greeting Farm's Cheeky Mate stamp with patriotic colors to represent the Fourth of July holiday. I actually colored this while nursing my three month old son since he hasn't been giving me much craft time in the last couple of days. I think I could have done a better job with my coloring but considering the circumstances I guess it's not bad. What do you think?

I used Copic Markers to color the Greeting Farm image. Then I cut a few die cuts from blue foil cardstock to give the card a little shine. I decided it didn't quite have enough shine to represent the 4th so I also added a few sequins.

 I'm submitting this card to the Marker Pop 4th of July challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.   Please check out the other entries here and here.
Here is my full list of supplies:

Copic markers: Y17, Y35, R20, R39, R29, E21, E99, E00, R37, B24, Y38, E11, R39, B18, B29
