PSC39 Red, White & Blue

Happy July 4th!  I hope your getting to spend the holiday with family & friends.  My Dad is retired from the Air Force-celebrating our freedom and the fact he's still with us is important to me.

This week @ The Perfect Sentiment, 

In honor of Independence Day we are letting you celebrate your freedom by choosing the occasion for your sentiment. You are also allowed to choose the type of project you would like to create! Card, Tag, ATC, Altered Art, etc. 

The twist: use our Nations colors: RED WHITE & BLUE

 I'm constantly fighting to get my card colors to show up right.  The one below is the right color, but not a good angle.

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project
