Colours of the Flag

Happy Saturday morning. has been such a busy week and I have had no mojo or time to play.  It is such a good time to feel patriotic this week for our great country of Canada so I wanted to make a card that was 'red' based. 
I was happy to see the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast where I found these adorable button flowers and got my creative juices flowing:
I wanted to keep my card pretty simple and clean and did so by masking off the top area of my card first. I inked the Patio Stone stamp using Distress inks in reds- Barn Door, Fired Brick and Worn Lipstick, sprayed with water and randomly stamped. I then removed the mask and stamped the sentiment and added the black lines to define the area.
I am also adding my card to these challenges:
Brown Sugar Challenge- ANYTHING GOES
Whether you are still celebrating Canada Day or Fourth of July for my American friends I hope you have a great weekend.  Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
Supplies:  stamps- WPlus 9, Designs by Ryn (Textures-Patio Stone)/ Distress inks/ blackline marker/ Memento bl/ ruler

Hi Karen,
I hope you enjoyed your Canada Day. I love the overlapping circles; its a very cool effect.

Hey Karen, great Canada Day creation! Honoured that you used my Patio Stone stamp. I like the clean and simple layout of this with that band of colour. Reminds me of a flag actually. I also LOVE your blog banner! Here's the link to my customer creation draw if you would like to enter this piece: I am now hosting the Monthly Draw's on my blog. There's also a link to the current one at the top. All my best to you!

Fabulous card, Karen! The stamp looks great masked and overlapping. Love how you've incorporated the sentiment into the border too.

This is a lovely one layer card! (which is something I need to learn how to do. I have a difficult time with one layer cards...but your lovely cards sure inspire me to keep trying!
