So retro with a wonderful nostalgic feel to it. It doesn't get more Americana than that sweet image. Love the way you have colored it and your designer papers are so perfect for this wonderful vintage piece.

Hugs,
Linda

Beautiful coloring on that little soldier! Such a great tribute to "Americana" and those papers work so well! Enjoy!

This is so sweet - love that little fella! Also, I really like that your red, white & blue are skewed a bit from the traditional bright red & navy - like that softer look.
