Patriotic Colours

Hi there bloggers and a very happy hump day!

Today sees a new challenge over at FOR FUN and this week we are sponsored by the wonderful Digi Doodle Shop!

The theme chosen this week is.........


For me, that meant RED, WHITE & BLUE! We were lucky enough to be given some wonderful digis from the Digi Doodle Shop to work's what I made:

It's a foldback card using the wonderful lighthouse image, which I chose as it reminds me of my childhood, growing up on the Isle of Wight.....this is just like the Needles lighthouse!
I coloured the image with Promarkers and used lots of layers for the image. My BPs are from Pink Petticoat, they are such a great set, and I often fall back on them if I am struggling to find DPs to match, as they come in a fab range of colours. I added some ric-rac and a few gems.

 The inside greeting reads: 'Birthday Wishes from the UK,' as this card will be travelling to my uncle in Australia.

Make sure you pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at the wonderful DT projects too.....some great creations from various parts of the world to see there. We hope you can join us this week!

I would like to enter a couple of challenges with my card:
Thanks so much for popping by! Have a great day!

This is wonderful, and the swirling paper and the ricrac are reminiscent of waves around the lighthouse, absolutely perfect!
You asked about the card on my blog, yes, it's digital, nearly everything I do is now, for various reasons, digi stuff works much better for me :)
