High Hopes Challenge #74--Show Us Your Colours!!

Good morning everyone!!! It's challenge time again over at High Hopes and this week yours truly is the hostess! This week I thought it would be nice to have some international flavour!! My challenge to you is to use the colours found in your home country's flag as your colour scheme and make a card or project using High Hopes stamps that shows off your colours!! I made a Canada Day card but your project does not have to be a patriotic card or project at all. Just use the colours as your main colour scheme & have fun!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!!

Here's my card...

I just love this stamp--it's called Are We There Yet? It reminds me of my husband & I!!

I definitely would make him do all the work too & these two have the same body shapes as we do LOL! (Hmmm--maybe if I pedalled more I wouldn't look so much like the beaver :)

I used a red brad on both wheels to highlight the hub to give them a more 3D look. And here's the inside...(sorry pic is a bit dark...)

I made this card for our good friends Al, Kim & Andrew!! We met them coming up on 10 years at a very, very low point in our lives & their friendship has been an anchor many times since!! Our first official get-together after meeting was to celebrate Canada Day at their house and since then it has always had extra-special meaning to celebrate our national holiday--especially if we get to share it with them!!

Thanks for coming by to see my card!! I hope you will play along too!! For some inspiration, check out what the rest of our design team divas have come up with here!! Hope you have a restful day!!!
