It's Your Day


Welcome to another week. Hope you had an enjoyable but restful weekend. Since it's Monday that means it's time for a new challenge at Kaboodle Doodles and this week we would like to see projects that use the Colours In Your Country's Flag. It can have any theme you'd like as long as the colour theme reflects your nation's flag. Maybe you could let us know what country you hail from since, I for one, am not really up on the different flags and their colours.
Since I live in SW Ontario, Canada my card features "Red & White". I used a couple of different DPs, one is by Stampin'up the other is a leftover piece of Christmas paper. I found this sketch on line at MoJo Monday ...I love sketches! Folder embossed the background cardstock and added some real stitching to the edges. I used a Prickley Pear die to cut out the pretty doilies (one under the sentiment, the other under the flower). I love this die and it cut really well in my Grand Caliber. Sentiment is a rubber stamp and I used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink. Layered flower was cut from a Spelllbinder die. A bit of gingham ribbon and a brad flower center to finish this up.
Looking forward to seeing your projects.
