Look out Belgium, here I come! I’m excited to be in the air, on my way to visit my parents, sisters, and lots of other relatives. But no, I’m not traveling in a hot air balloon. This card was made for the Verve Stamps World Card Making Day challenge on SCS earlier this month: Pick a flag and make a card using the colors of that flag. Be sure to tell us what country you chose and the colors on it.
I paper-pieced the balloon with the colors of the Belgian flag: black, yellow, and red. The sketch I used was that week’s Sketch For You To Try from Jen del Muro (10/3/09).
Thanks for stopping by!
