Canada Day Card Challenge

I was asked by Tiffany of "Paper-Garden.ca" if I would like to participate in their Canada Day themed card challenge….not only that, but she offered to send me some papers to play with.
It sounded like a fun challenge and being a proud Canadian, I was excited to play along.

Here is my take on the challenge using their papers :)

The one thing I love most about living in Canada, is our beautiful land.
There is nature all around me here.
But how to incorporate this into my card…..then it came to me….birch bark :)
I punched the Maple leaves (on the banner) out of birch bark.

I coloured up this cute Prima Doll image with my Copics and then paper pieced her dress.
I added some lace to the bottom of her dress and some sparkly brads for her dress buttons.

I added a cluster of red and white flowers and then added a bit of birch bark swirls to as filler.

Here are the papers that Tiffany from Paper-Garden sent to me.

The papers on the right has such beautiful shimmer to them.

Here is a closer look at the shimmer..so pretty.
The weight to the shimmer paper is too thin to make a card out from, so I just cut it to size and adhered it on the lovely card stock they sent me :)

How fun are these simmer envelopes :)

If you would like to join in on the challenge yourself, check out this link "Canada Day Card Challenge" they have prizes as well :)
I have also came to realize (yes I am dense like that) that you can vote for the card you like the most.
If you would like to do that here is the link "Card Voting"  I'm going to be sharing my card on there, so pop on over and check them out :)

I hope you all have a very creative day today :)
