Whimsical Wednesday Challenge # 12 Lets get Patriotic

Hello and good day fellow crafters.
I had such a hard time using the red copic markers for this challenge...I actually colored this image 3 times and when I realized I wasnt getting any better I gave up...LOL ....for now at least.
I only have a couple red markers so the next set of 12 markers I get  ( I buy 12 at a time on ebay for 51.00)
I will try some different shades of red.
No matter what method I tried....the red color bleeds out of the lines...I have not had that problem with any of the other colors...yet....it dosent really matter as long as we have fun....right?
I still like my card as long as you look at it from a distance...lol the challenge was to use a brad or bling or a button...I thought I would try to use all 3 but could only make it work with a button and always...THE BLING!!
