Roses July Challenge
Hello everyone! I am now on schedule for the Roses challenge, even though it may look like I'm a little early for Christmas!
This month Mary Anne Rose issued a patriotic challenge, since it's Olympics time. She said: I want you to create something to show me what patriotic means to you. Use your country's colors and be proud!
Well, Mexico is now my adopted country and the colors of the flag are green, white and red. Green represents hope, white represents purity, and red represents the blood of national heroes.
Getting back to Mary Anne's challenge, being patriotic to me means doing nothing (even unknowingly) to dishonor this wonderful country's flag. So, rather than doing something that may offend in some way, I am just going to use Mexico's colors to make a Christmas card. I used Cindy's Freshly Made Sketches #45 for the layout of my card.
Have a wonderful day, everyone, and enjoy it to the fullest!
