Red, white and blue theme (with a twist)

Hee hee... I bet you thought you were going to see a patriotic card. Surprise!!!

Happy Canada Day to us Canucks. Hope you had a wonderful Canada Day yesterday.
And to our neighbours south of the border, Happy Independence Day! Hope you have good weather coming your way for your long weekend.

LOL, I took the red, white and blue theme and made a Christmas-in-July card instead.


I have made this card for the challenge at the Magnolia-licious Birthday Bash blog, celebrating the 2-year birthday of Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group. The theme is Red/White/Blue.

There's also this sketch that I was supposed to use. I didn't have a picture of the sketch in front of me when I was putting the card together--I had the picture in my mind. So when I was finished and compared my card to the sketch...yikes, I had used an extra background paper!!! Maybe this will disqualify me?!?!
Oh well, thems the breaks. I want to share this card with you anyway.

I am also using this card as my entry to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge 14 - Christmas in July.


I have used this image of Cozy Tilda from Magnolia's So Jolly and Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009. I have again used my Prismacolor pencils to colour her. Lots of glitter that I have added to this card: Tilda's wings, white fur trim on her outfit and on the snowflakes.

Thank for dropping by. I appreciate your visit. Enjoy your weekend! woo hooo.....

Stamps: Magnolia Cozy Tilda, Inkadinkadoo swirls and snowflakes, sentiment is computer generated.

Tools: Martha Stewart border punch snowflakes and single huge snowflake punch, EK Success snowflake punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder Snowflakes, Spellbinders Nestabilities standard circles small and large, Big Shot machine.

Norma, this is gorgeous. The red just pops and adds "zest" to your card. I love how all the swirls, DP and the snowflakes "go together", so perfect. I had to chuckle as I thought of your card as being....cool, brrr...and then I read the sentiment....lol.
