Proud to be Canadian

Finally, a card.  It feels like a very long time since I have made a card.  This one is to celebrate being Canadian.  Our country celebrates our independence on July 1st and although we are proud to be Canadian we aren't usually ones to put on a big show.  Unfortunately sometimes that translates to the fact that we aren't very patriotic.  Our oldest daughter leaves in August for a 2 month trip which includes Barbados, Europe and Greece.  One of the key things she keeps hearing is how to display that she is Canadian and that she will receive a warm welcome as one.  Sometimes other people need to remind us that Canadians are wonderful people. 

My card is made to signify and celebrate all the wonderful Canadians I know.  Happy Canada Day everyone!!  I used the sketch challenge from Mojo Monday 145, the color challenge from Curtain Call Color Challenge 36 and although I followed a patriotic challenge at Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, I incorporated it as a patriotic Canadian card.


Recipe:

Stamps:  Sitting - Gorjuss Girls, Canada Day - SU
Paper:  Kraft, Night of Navy, Real Red, Whisper White, patterned paper
Ink:  Versamark, Tsukineko Graphite Black, Basic Black, Real Red
Accessories:  ribbon, circle cutter, chalks, sponge daubers, copics and pop dots

How lovely to see a card celebrating Canada. We always celebrate with a 'family day' and that might entail just about anything but we certainly don't let it go unnoticed. Great card!
