Happy Friday!

I hope you all survived the week!

We have a fun challenge starting over at Cut It Up today-
International Day of Peace.
Choose a Country you have been to, or one you would like to go to,
and use their colors to create a project.

So I have never been out of the country really.
I have never had a passport,
but it is on my Bucket List to at least get one :)

If I ever do get the chance to travel outside the country,
I would definitely LOVE to go to England!
I would love to do a Jane Austen tour and visit all the
magnificent countrysides to be found there.

Anyway, the colors on the England flag are Red, White, and Blue,
so as I was creating this card it definitely turned patriotic.

I followed the fabulous sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas this week
and used papers from My Mind's Eye
6x6 "Remarkable" Paper Pad.

The oval and shadow were both cut from George and
the star is from Home Decor Solutions cartridge.

I added some enamel dots from Recollections
for the finishing touch.

I am also entering this into Little Scrap Pieces and

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
