Today we are having a holiday in South Africa...Heritage day...You can celebrate your Heritage in many ways, but many do it in a fun way and it is now also called "National Braai day" South Africans from all walks of life, whatever culture or colour, all seem to enjoy a 'good old braai'...(barbecue), so hence the day has become known for getting together and celebrating with family, friends, colleagues over a lovely meal with a fire and a good piece of meat.
Our second son also celebrates his birthday today, so more cause for having a good family celebration, which we will do over lunch
Now onto my card for this week's colour challenge at The Outlawz .
This is what I used on my card:
Paper...Embossed the cardstock and distressed it with walnut stain, The coloured paper cut with an X-cut die.
Image is coloured with distress inkpads, cut out with a die and the edges inked with Vintage photo.
Flower is a Joy flower die, edges are distressed and inked.
Finished off with buttons and a sentiment.
The lovely colour palette was chosen by Penny, with the twist to add sponging or distressing.
Our sponsor for the last time this month is Stamp n Doodle
I invite you to go and have a look at the lovely cards made by the DT, then to come and join in the fun this week.
I will enter some challenges with this card later.
