color combos galore: a bit of americana

there's a new inspiration board up at color combos galore.  it's called "a bit of americana" and it's the perfect mix of red white and blues.  i love how the light blue and gray is included!

thanks so much for stopping by today!  i hope your week is off to a great start!
