Perfect Sentiment Challenge #85 - Red, White, and Blue

Our challenge this week at The Perfect Sentiment Challenge is:

CREATE A CARD FOR THE OCCASION OF YOUR CHOICE. IN HONOR OF THE UPCOMING INDEPENDENCE DAY, HERE IN THE U.S. USE THE COLORS RED, WHITE, & BLUE.

Since your card can be for any occasion, the only requirement is that you use those three colors, and remember to include a sentiment on the front of your card.



Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps who is providing 3 free digis for one lucky winner.  I used their digi called "Flag Girl." I colored the image with Copic markers, embossed her background with The Paper Studio's "Tiny Stars," and used CTMH papers, star brads, Outdoor Denim twill and sentiment stamp.


I thought this sketch #69 from Retro Sketches was perfect for my card:
