Good Monday Morning everyone. Today I bring you my challenge card for this week's PTI MIM theme of flagged borders. (You can view Dawn's MIM video here.) As I have been in a very patriotic frame of mind since Memorial Day, and with our country's birthday celebration just around the corner, I decided to go with the inspiration for this challenge.
The most difficult part of this card was letting some of these flags sit slanted or crooked. I have a hard time letting go of the the straight and narrow alignment tendencies I practiced during my years in the service, which often can be a block to creative spirit. It's getting better - but still not easy!
Thanks for stopping by!
