A flag is the inspiration today

Happy Tuesday friends,

It has been a rather frustrating couple of days...had internet problems, but hopefully they are now sorted, but yesterday afternoon we had some lovely rain. Fortunately the hail that accompanied it wasn't too bad here by us, but a fair bit of damage in other places. We so badly needed the rain that many people said they didn't mind the hail. We have had searing temps of 33 to 37 deg. C most days for the past 2 weeks and no rain so water restrictions have been imposed. It is lovely and cool today and the temp is down by about 10deg. this morning.

On to the challenge for today. At The Outlawz the colour challenge this week is to use the flag of Sri Lank for inspiration.

My teamies on the DT have made some lovely cards for inspiration , so please pop over and visit them.

You can choose whatever you wish...colours, design, etc.. as there is no twist.

Our sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps  and I have used the image  'Dozen Roses' which you can find HERE

The company is closing at the end of November, so if you wish to get any of their images, do hurry before the 25th

For my card I went with the colours of the flag.

The polka dot paper is a piece from my stash, but it is more yellow on the card than in the photo.

I coloured the image with Distress inkpads, cut it out with a square MFD and rounded the corners to match the scolloped diecut that I mounted it onto.

The sentiment was stamped onto two of the banners and then matted onto 2 larger banners, and held together with a daisy brad. The die is from Impression Obsession.

Finished it off with a ribbon and a pearl.
