Independence Day Celebration - PPA162 Color Challenge

Today is the day we celebrate a free America. I am so thankful for each person who has stepped up and defended our freedom for over 200 years! 

I don't want to neglect to thank those who serve today, so this card goes out to Maggie Mata, a military Stampin' Up! demonstrator and member of the Pretty Pals with us! She is serving oversees right now and I am proud to know her and call her a Pal.

I save all of my "patriotic" stamps, so this sentiment comes from a retired set called Service and Sacrifice -- it says it perfectly.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. Happy 4th of July! I hope you will find a way to play along with us at Pals Paper Arts!

Whatever you are doing to celebrate today, please be safe! I'm in Hawai'i enjoying my week-old granddaughter! I hear there are fireworks in store for us at night, so I'm pretty excited altogether! I will post baby pics tomorrow, so be sure and stop by again.

striped texture and bold colors! great combination. the trio of flowers gives it a softness but still graphically cool!
