God Bless America!

I had another fun idea using the Triple Embossing Technique from the Technique Junkies- from the latest newsletter.......

 




  When I looked at the wood grain embossing I did on the last card, I thought....R/W/B!!!  I love it!  The image is from Coronado Island Stamps, and the sentiment retired SU.


Nothing says I love the USA better than an Eagle and God Bless America!!!

Challenges:
Crazy Catz- Add some embossing
Kitty Bee Designs- R/W/B
Simply Create Too- Use the colors in your country's flag

Thanks for stopping by!
