I'm a little Dutch girl, Dutch girl, Dutch girl.......

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all having a good week...
I suppose being married to a 'a little Dutch boy, must make me a little Dutch girl'...LOL

Well this week the  colour challenge at The Outlawz is red, white and blue and these colours together with the  inspirational photo was the choice of Laurian, who challenged us to add shine to our creations.

Now this combination of colours immediately made me think 'Dutch" so  here is what I came up with.

Image - 3 Dutch girls - Digistamps4Joy, coloured with Distress inks, cut out and mounted on a die cut.
Paper - using pieces from my stash
Corners and flourish - JoyCrafts
Flower - LeCrea designs
Sentiment - Country Crafts

The twist - add some shine - The centre of the flower is a card candy, covered with glossy accents.

Our sponsor for the month of February has been Doodle Dragon Studios, with a lovely prize for the winner.

The DT ladies have made some really awesome cards for your inspiration, so I hope you will pop over and have a look. We would love you to join us with your creations.

I am going to enter the following challenges:

Make it Monday...Anything goes
My Grafico challenge #146...Anything goes
The Pink Elephant challenge #188...Anything goes
Eureka Stamps challenge...Flower power
Challenges4Everybody...Anything goes
One stitch at a time #152...Use a digi

Thanks for visiting and leaving your lovely comments, I do enjoy reading them. Will be back soon, take care and have some fun.
Love Ursula
