H2H Challenge - Patriotism

I'm very excited to share my first challenge as a part of the H2H Design Team. You can play along too, by creating artwork sharing your Patriotism. Keep reading to find out how!

Create your own artwork and post it to the H2H Challenge blog. CTMH products must be included in any artwork submitted for the challenge, but it does not have to be 100% CTMH. If other products are used, a description or list of what was used would be appreciated.

On to my card.......I find we Canadians are quietly proud to be Canadians. I wanted to shout it out with this card, just how proud I am to be a Canadian! 

I started with patterned paper from Roxie. I stamped words and an image from both Celebrate Canada and Canadian Celebration sets, in Holiday Red ink. I cut maple leaves from Holiday Red cardstock with my Art Philosophy cartridge in all different sizes. I also cut an oval in White Daisy cardstock and a scalloped oval in Holiday Red. I stamped the Canadian flag image in Holiday Red, then added the words in Black ink.

My border with the shaped bottom is cut from Art Philosophy in Kraft paper and matted with White Daisy. I have lined it with Bitty Opaques for some understated bling. I stamped the leaf border with Holiday Red and added Holiday Red grosgrain ribbon on either side, as a border. I sponged Desert Sand ink on all of my borders.

Finally, there would not be anything Canadian completed without our signature "eh!". I used retired Doodle Alphabet, as the font looks as fun as we do when we use this Canadianism!
