I Wave the Flag

Blue Ribbon Winner #2:
This was our 4th of July card for this year . . .

When it became obvious that coloring the blue field behind the white stars would be a nightmare operation, I opted to white-emboss the stars over a navy background, which was then cut out and glued over the flag.  It added a little extra dimension which worked quite well on a flag that was designed to look like it's flapping in the breeze.

The sentiment reads:  
Sure I wave the American flag.  Do you know a better flag to wave?
