2RB: Patriotic Please

I hope your 4th of July was a fantastic day! We celebrated my brother's birthday with a cookout at my parent's house and then fireworks in the evening. This is one of my favorite holidays. I'm so thankful for the freedoms that I have, for the founding fathers who believed in it and fought for it and for those men and women who fight for it today - both for us and for others less fortunate around the world!

Since it's Sunday that means it's time for another Banana Split Sunday; this week's challenge is all things patriotic! Be sure to visit the 2RedBananas blog to see the other creations by the design team. We'd love to have you play along with us as well. Just link up your creation at the blog!

I knew that I wanted to make a patriotic bee as soon as I saw this weeks theme. He's colored with my prismacolors and baby oil. The sketch is from 2Sketches4You. The paper and star gems are from my stash!

Check out the rest of the bunch and leave them some love!
