Happy 4th U.S.A.

Hello Readers,

Today marks a special day at MHKDesigns. In honor of the U.S.A. we are releasing a new stamp set called 'Forever Wave'. This set is uniquely American and just delightful. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Nothing is more American then a waving flag.
The sentiment, that also comes with the set, is a message I can't say enough.
Coloring the flag seemed to be a bit tricky.
I printed the flag at 50% opacity then colored it using a
combination of markers and colored pencils. 
By rotating and enlarging the image it acts as a kind
 directional marker to the sentiment.
There is a lot more to discover at MHKDesigns Etsy Shop! There always seems to something new to entice your creativity. I invite you to stop on over and see what we have to offer. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I want to extend a thank you to all who serve or have served our country. I am grateful for your sacrifice of time, family, and, yes, even life. Freedom to be me because of our Armed Services is what this beautiful flag so wonderfully represents. Thank you isn't enough but it is all I have.

All the best,
