Happy Canada Day!

Pin It
Hi everyone,

We have another challenge going on at 613 Ave Create again this week. Our sponsor is Rick St Dennis. The challenge is anything goes but for the DT we have an extra theme to make something to celebrate our country's International holiday. July 1st is Canada Day. We have a big celebration in our community with a parade to start the day and fire works in the evening at the park. Lots of fun for all. Then on the weekend we celebrate Raspberry Fest.

Abbotsford, British Columbia is one of the most berry rich cities in Canada (in fact, it is the raspberry capital of the country!) so come to the City in the Country to celebrate berry bounty at the Abbotsford Berry Beat Festival! Pick your own berries in the field, try decadent berry deserts (and strawberry pancakes!), learn about local berries, groove to music, try your luck at the 'berried' treasure hunt and experience this fun street festival in Downtown Abbotsford!

So the theme for my card this week is Canada Day. I found this beautiful wall paper and resized it for my card. The card base is neenah white cs then layered it with the wallpaper I printed off the computer. I used a cuttlebug folder on the sides of the DP to give it a bit more texture.  I did have a red card stock to add first before the background but it wasn't in site so it was left off. I added two sm maple leaf's that I cut our with my small round punches. I distress around the digi and the two maple leaves with copic E18. The Rick St Dennis digi is called Maraposa Fairy and I coloured her with copic markers. I added her with dimentionals on the back. I then faux stitched around the background to brighten up the card. I added glitter on the wings but again it doesn't show. I will enter this card into these challenges.
