Patriotic and/or Red White and Blue

Well it just so happens that the flag colours for several countries happen to be Red White and Blue --- Australia, New Zealand, England and USA to name the first four that come to mind.  So it fits in quite nicely with the Patriotic theme, of course it's the 4th July celebrations for the US players, however we don't celebrate that date here in Australia, patriotism here seems to be a bit more understated except when it comes to sport!  I've actually not mashed up my card this week and done just the colour combo.

This card is actually an A4 sheet folded in half, my manager is moving on to a new role and we are having a farewell for her, she's one of the best managers I've had the pleasure and priviledge to work to and I've learnt so much from her.  Still, nothing stays the same and we all need to move on to grow.  
 My inside flowers pictured above were helped out a little by the micro beads I found amongst my stash, perfect colour for this project and it adds just the bling I was looking for, dimension and shine but not too much sparkle.

Lisa is a bright and vibrant woman so the rich red of Cherry Cobbler complimented by the Navy and White was perfect for her.  I know I am among the many who will miss her smiling face around the office, but as she's still working for the same organisation, we will get to catch up from time to time.

Here is an inside shot of my card, I've used the Greenhouse Garden stamp set on the front of the card along with the shooting star from the SaB set  So Happy for You.

So I hope you have been inspried by my creation and if patriotism is more your thing, head on over to the Friday Mashup blog and check out what the other DT members have created for your viewing pleasure.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with.
