Colour challenge using the colours of the flag.

Good morning friends,
The first week of June.....WOW! and as it is Tuesday there is a new Colour challenge at The Outlawz.

It was my turn to choose the challenge this week and as I have previously used the flag of my own country, I decided to use one of our neighbours'.. Botswana. The colours are a little different from many of the other African countries, so I hope you will be inspired to join us this week.

As it is a new month we also have a new sponsor. Sweet Pea Stamps


We invite you to come and see the cards made by the DT for your inspiration and they have all used one of the images from our sponsor.






This is my card:

I used blue cardstock and matted a patterned paper diecut onto it. The paper is from my stash...still trying to use up all the scraps, some large, some small. I used a Marianne Design die to cut the 2 papers.

Coloured the image "Abbie" with Distress Inkpads. Added glitter and pearlescent paint to the balloons. Also put some  on the 2 little hearts. Cut a rectangle and rounded the corners.

The sentiment was a freebie

Finished off with a bow, a small pearly heart and some pearls in the corners.

Will enter these challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper...Anything goes
Artistic Inspirations #132...Anything goes with a twist of die cuts
Crafting from the Heart #62...Anything goes
