Canada Day Card

Well "Good Morning" to you. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. Since it's Monday it's time for a new challenge over at Kaboodle Doodles and this week we want to see your projects that "Celebrate Your Country's Independence". Our sponsor this week is Di's Digi Downloads and she is generously offering a $10 voucher to her store. How sweet is that! 
Here in Canada we will be celebrating Canada Day on July 1. The whole day is a day of celebration, including BBQ's, Fun Fairs, fireworks and parades. I love parades so I decided to show case that event in my project. The digital image is by Mo Manning and I was so delighted that Mo left the little flag blank so each papercrafter could colour it to suit their project. Thanks Mo! My main DP is by Stampin'up. The flowers & leaves were cut from scraps using a Spellbinder die. I decided to use some real stitching to dress it up a bit. The Canada embellishment is an oldie but goodie that I've had for quite some time. Added a few butttons, ribbon & brad flower centers to finish this card up.
So, that's my take on this week's theme, now I would love to see what you come up with. Hope you'll  play along. Just link up your project right here:

Until next time.
