Belli Challenge #68 Patriotic

With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, our Creative Belli Challenge is to create a patriotic card. Any time of the year is a good time to send a card to one of our troops which is where this one will go. I recently had the chance to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. I was deeply moved and wanted to do a card to reflect that visit.

Joanne, this is beautiful. It's so different than the red, white and blue colors we're so used to and yet be so patriotic. I love the Liberty Bell with the Declaration of Independence in the background..
