I used the colours Red White & Blue for this card and also made this for my Brother. DP is from my stash and the gems are from QVC in a decoupage kit. The sentiments came with the image and hope you can see the inside sentiment. White satin ribbon is from Mia flower. image coloured again with my promarkers. Touch of 3d gloss on the glasses
