simply create too 63 (celebrate your country)

Did you see all the great ideas for Father's Day cards in the last challenge over at Simply Create Too? This time we've a fun one for you. Make a card using your country's flag's colors! How's that for different?

I chose the colors of the German flag, thinking there would be enough red, white and blue beauties showing up. This is what the flag looks like - they're all over the place at the moment in anticipation of the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament!

And here's my card.

Channeling my inner Aga, I used the Papertrey Circle Scribbles to make some poppies - they're all over the fields and paths here right now. Stamped them with spritzed ink using the reverse of the stamp - once in bright red and once in darker red - and then turned the stamp over and stamped it normally in black.  Hand drew the stems and added a sentiment and enamel dots. Easy peasy as they say!

Join us for this fun "color" challenge.  

Thanks for visiting.

Supplies for cheers tag:
Paper:  CS Bringmann
Stamps: Papertrey
Ink : Distress, Adirondack, Memento
Other: enamel dots MME
