Use Your National Flag
This week at MDUC we're using our national flag! At first I thought this was gonna be boring because of course, I only have 2 colors to play with. WRONG! Also, not to mention it's right before Valentine's so guess what?!! A 2-fer-1!! hee hee! :)
So instead of a card I thought I'd play with a Valentine's project. I'm thinking there may be more of these coming but when I do that I end up eating the leftover chocolates. That's baaaad!! But yummy. LOL!!
Aren't the ribbons cute? I used the tutorial from Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings but the only thing I did different was I added a little bit of hairspray to them. hee hee
I'm so excited about my coloring on this image. I watched Make It Crafty's tutorial on folds and also took tips from the Magnolia Ink "Sweet Christmas Dreams|" magazine. I did make a few mistakes but being that it was my first time I was pretty happy with the fact that I colored a useable image. LOL!!
You should see some of the other cards the ladies at MDUC made. I am sooo glad my colors weren't what some of theirs were. Talk about challenging but they did really well!
I'm going to enter into the Magnolia-licious Highlites valentine inspired contest for a chance to win 2 images from the new Sweet Crazy Love collection. You still have 10 days to enter this one if you'd like a chance too.
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
