Hi everyone and to all my Australian readers Happy Australia Day!
It’s challenge time again with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. It’s my turn to host the challenge again this week.
It’s a special day for all Aussies today as it is Australia Day! It is on this day in 1788 that the First Fleet arrived at Sydney Cove. So our challenge is Aussie related … I will give you a few options … use the colors green & gold on your card; create a beach scene (we love our beaches); use Australian Animals; Tongs (you wear on your feet btw) etc.
Late last year I purchased this Magnolia Koala Hugs Tilda which is an exclusive stamp from Shopbron a stamp store here in Australia. Of course I had to use this for my card today!
As you can see I have created yet another Centre Step card, I love making these cards. For those of you who haven’t tried them yet you can find my tutorial and video on the resources section of Splitcoast Stampers.
I also used the colors green and yellow on my card which is Australia’s national colors, which is also the colors of Australia’s floral emblem the Golden Wattle. I did add a little orange to my card as well.
I also got to play with my new small Madison window die from Poppy Stamps …. I created a scene of gum trees that you can see through the window.
Here is the inside of my card, the sentiment is one I have had for years.
