I pulled out an old Hanna Stamps set (now retired) since it fit perfectly in the open space left on the white circle and used my Copic markers to color the image. Turned out cute! It's difficult to see, but I also used my colorless blender marker to add tiny dots to the blue part of the flag. It gives just a hint of stars. The red-striped mat and the red sentiment strip are both distressed along the edges to add a little bit of texture.
I had a lot of fun with this sketch! It's an easy layout with lots of possibilities. :)
