Happy Canada Day!

It's Canada's birthday today, so I wanted to make a special card to post today. The sketch this week from Create With Connie and Marie worked well for showcasing the retired maple leaf stamp. Lots of red and white with just a touch of silver for some sparkle make for a fun and patriotic card.
I'll be spending the day walking in the parade with the boys' football team, and then helping out at the festivities afterwards. Hopefully the weather cooperates!

Recipe (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Magnificant Maple (retired), Starburst Sayings

Ink: Real Red

Paper: Fresh Prints DSP stack (retired), Real Red, Whisper White card stock

Misc: Starbust Framelits, 1 1/4" circle punch, Silver Bakers Teine, rhinestones, dimensionals
