Happy 4th of July! ~

Happy Fourth of July!  A couple months ago you may remember that I made this gal for a SSW challenge here but in a pink/yellow/green combo.  I filled in recently at a card swap and the challenge was red/white/blue, so I thought she'd look just as good in these beautiful colors too!
Keeping with tradition, here are the same sweet words I post every year on this special day:

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father's God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.

Happy 4th of July!!
