Happy Canada Day!


That's right folks, today, July 1st, is Canada Day! So in honour of my country's birthday, I've created a card using the colours of the Canadian flag...white and red. Ok, so I stamped in black and Stella's hair is brown (really, could you see her with red hair???) but the overall feel screams Canada. I'm Canadian, eh, so this little holiday is a bit lost on me living here in the USA, but I am looking forward to July 4th because I'm adaptable! grin!  :)

The layout is Mojo Monday Sketch #93 and this card also qualifies for the Corrosive Challenge #18 , to make something patriotic. I stamped Birthday Cake with Stella in It from Stamping Bella with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured her with copics...no elaborate shading here folks. I added some shimmer with a red Spica glitter pen then more bling to the cake with Christmas Red Stickles. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also from Stamping Bella then I used my JustRite Times New Roman Lower Case font to spell out Canada. The words are stamped with black Stazon onto a white acrylic tag. I added a red Bella Bonbon to the tag and two Oyster Bonbons in the corner. 

In case you're curious about Canada, I found a couple of links containing a little Canadian Trivia. Heck, even I learned something and it made me laugh too! Canadian Trivia and Fun Canadian Trivia

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Karen! Love the bling you added to the cake and that super cute ribbon, button, bow embellishment! Just darling! Stella with red hair on this card would be a bit of an overkill..tee hee. Happy Birthday to our favorite neighbors!
