Celebrating Australia Day


Happy Tuesday bloggers,
Today we have another colour challenge at The Outlawz and once again we are using the theme...colours of your flag.

I might not be very popular for using  this title on my blog. It is a well known fact that South Africans and Australians are big rivals on the sporting fields, but as Ina is hosting the challenge, and being Australian, it is fitting that her country's flag is the inspiration this week, as the Australians celebrate their national day on 26 January.
There is no twist, so use the flag or colours to inspire you for this week's challenge.

The DT have all come up with some amazing cards some of them using an image from Stitchy Bear stamps who is our sponsor this month, so I hope you will come and visit and then join in with your creation.

Paper - From my stash. Coloured the red paper with Pan Pastels

Image - Daisy and you can find it
HERE. Coloured it with Pan Pastels for a change.

Sentiment - computer generated attached with brads.

Added twine and buttons
