A Sneak Peek at Freedom!

Today's card uses colors from the SCS Color Challenge 216: Basic Black, Old Olive and Real Red. We could also choose Very Vanilla or Whisper White. My sweet friend, Betty Wright, is hosting today!

I chose Very Vanilla and stamped the eagle in Palette Noir Black, then watercolored lightly with More Mustard, Basic Gray, and Creamy Caramel. The black panel is also pierced at the top (like the red at the bottom) but the picture doesn't pick that up~

I chose images from new May 1st releases by Our Daily Bread designs. There are three new sets available this Friday -- all patriotic! Be sure to come back on the 1st and see what else is going on at ODBD! We will have a fun sketch challenge for you!

Check out these Sneak Peeks!
