Sugar and Spice Challenge #7 Patriotic

Our 7th Challenge is Patriotic

When Sherri from Sugar and Spice put the new challenge out there for the designers I was very excited to see what we would come up with.  I myself felt very proud to be doing a card in honor of Canada's birthday, July 1st.  While putting my thoughts together I decided to keep it fairly simple and clean and try to do justice to Canada's red and white colours. 

 I embossed both the red and white background papers using the Darice bark/wood grain embossing folder, to me this resembled our beautiful maple trees here in Canada. I added a maple leaf brad - painted it red and white like our flag. The butterfly is die cut with an Elizabeth crafts die (one of my favourite).  This just reminds me of all the pretty butterflies we start to see this time of year.

I really hope you get inspired and feel the love for your country like I have.  Please join us and submit your entry to Patriotic - Red and White or White, Red, and Blue Sugar and Spice Challenge.  Can't wait to see what you come up with and maybe even see which country has more submissions.

Happy Canada Day - July 1st and to our Red White and Blue neighbour's on July 4th.

Sincerely, Leah
