My Country - and some Midnight Madness
I began this card after noticing that today is Canada Day. My blogging "Sister" Janet, from Canada, kindly sent me a voucher to use with the Canadian company Stampinbella after I was on her blog design team. The stamps have been waiting for me to add Ezmount and to ink them up and I decided that today I really should use them and even better I should try to use them to enter Janet's Corrosive Challenge.
Hmm... this week the Challenge is "Your Country Rocks... to honour our countries your theme this week is to make something to represent your country, use the colours of your flag, something common in your country, anything you want really, just make it about your country." - and I got a cocktail drinking Bella and a Bella with wellies and a brolly. Tricky! I'm not a big fan of red, white and blue cards but I had an idea: what do we all know about England? Yup, it rains a lot! Mind you, it's very hot today and Bella would do better to use her brolly as a sunshade :). I hope this is ok as a card to represent England Janet, it's also doubling up as a Get Well card, I need to send one.
I've used a fun sketch from Midnight Madness Week 8, which has lots going on in it. I've slightly changed it to fit a square not an oblong card, as the papers I wanted to use are 6x6" and wouldn't work on anything but a small oblong.
I'm also making this my third Charisma Cardz rubbernecker challenge entry :)
The cards uses all Basic Grey DP, I've paper pieced Bella's dress, boots and brolly from it. There is ric-rac across the corners, the sentiment is also Stampinbella.
