Red, White, & Blue at Sassy Cheryl's!

Hey there, m'darlins!! It's time for another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! And this week we have 6 fabulous new designers who are joining the Sassy Cheryl's DT "Sassy Gals!" I'm delighted to have each and every one of these talented ladies joining us in our "Sassy" adventures each week!!

And now . . . on to this week's challenge!! My sweet and always sassy DT sistah, Cathy, has chosen a rather "Patriotic" theme . . .

"Red, White, & Blue!"

Perfect . . .  since this week we celebrate "Independence Day" here in America! Sooooooo . . . without further ado, here's my card . . . 
Once again, I've used my fave Maddie and Max! This is actually a merged version of "Honoring the Flag - Maddie" (available HERE) and "Honoring the Flag - Max (available HERE). Oh oh . . . and this is cool . . .Max and Maddie "honoring the Flag" is available HERE as a combined image too, so you don't even have to fiddle with merging if you don't want to!! Here's a close-up of these cuties . . . 

And a side view . . .

Well where should I start? Coloring is incredibly gorgeous. I love colors on their clothes. Love metal stars, charm flag, paper is so special.
I know there is something inside too. I always expect something inside. I'm still very impressed. Just beautiful! I'm your big fan!
