"Canada Day"

Hey folks!
It's Wednesday p.m. - I'm out for a while tonight.... and want to have this posted for Thursday morning...
Here is my Canada Day card! I had this brain wave to make a red and white card for Canada Day ... should have used Real Red.
BUT - I love this new color - `Cherry Cobbler` - so decided to use it and white.
I used the new Hostess set `Because I Care` ... I hope you can see the dimension to the flower... I stamped it 4 times and cut it out, smaller and smaller; then using dimensionals, I built it up! The ribbon is white organza that I dyed with the Cherry Cobbler ink ... using a sponge and ink pad!


Have a wonderful Canada Day!
Give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy in this beautiful country we live in!
Smile, live, laugh, and love -
Stay safe!
Blessings ---- *Ruthie*
