As You See It 138 - DT card

This week's challenge at As You See It is a challenge to honour Canada Day.

Here in New Zealand, we have recently had a referendum over whether or not to change our flag. At present it has a Union Jack in one corner and the rest is a stylised Southern Cross in colours of red, white and blue. During the pre-referendum debate, the stylish simplicity of the Canadian flag and the ease with which it is recognised was often brought up. One of the popular options discussed for us was our silver fern on a black ground although that didn't quite make it to one of the final options to be voted on. All a storm in a teacup, as status quo ruled. Anyway, I've used the red and white as my theme for this challenge.

While looking for inspiration for this I came across the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, where I sometimes play. It was a great sketch and I enjoyed using it.

So please, join us on our Canada Day theme - or just red and white theme - over the next two weeks. You have until Wednesday July 13 (PST) to show us just how you like it!
