Marvelous Magnolia-July Challenge "Summer"

Happy 150th Birthday Canada!!!

To all my fellow Canadians...I'd like to wish you all a most wonderful Canada Day as we celebrate our nations 150th Birthday...I hope that you all have special plans with family and/or friends!!

Well for me July 1st always seems like the real beginning of summer...even though that officially happens in June!!  The kids are finished school...the holidays begin...hopefully we get some sunshine...which we've been sorely lacking of late!!!!!

Today at Marvelous Magnolia we begin our new challenge and that is...YES...you guessed it..."Summer"!  When I think of summer I also think of strawberries...we usually pick them late June early July...my own strawberry plant hasn't yet ripened.

So with all this in mind...I decided to make a birthday card for Canada in our Canadian colours...red and white!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I made a simple easel card...
DP is Magnolia...
flags are from La La Land...
 I thought this little sweetie in her bathing suit and carrying a sting of flags fit the bill perfectly...she's "Tilda with Summer Flags" from the Pink Lemonade 2014 collection...
coloured with my copics...
mounted on cheesecloth that I inked up with red distress ink...then mounted on white ruffled ribbon...
 close up...
I paper pieced the flags using the DP...
 "Wrapped Heart Tag" is a Magnolia Doo-hickey...
Happy Birthday is from The Frantic Stamper...
I put the hearts from the flag die cut into the bottle....
 used up some odds and ends to make this bow...
 the strawberry was made using a heart punch and a maple leaf punch...

And that is my "Summer" card!!  Time for you to pay my talented teamies a visit...check out their beautiful creations at Marvelous Magnolia...then come on and join us!!

All materials are listed above.
