Dutch Treat

So, this weekend the FIFA World Cup began in South Africa and I thought I would pay homage to this event by creating a card that is influenced by the team that could win it all.... The Netherlands! Really I was looking for inspiration for this week's Mojo Monday challenge (see sketch on right), and it gave me an excuse to use my awesome "Netherlands" stamp set from Stampin' UP!

So, what did I end up creating? Take a look for yourself:

I don't think it is a winner (this one and this one are definite contenders), but it was fun to play along. My favourite part of the card is the little Dutch boy and girl. I embossed them, and then cut them out and popped them up on the card. I am also very fond of the burgandy cardstock in the background. I ripped the cardstock to give it a "rustic" feel, and the colour really pops on top of the subtle patterned paper.
Hope you like it, and I hope to have some new creations posted soon!

For crying out loud - that card is zo kunnen! I didn't think you were going to get it done before you left. But not only did you finish it, but it is bewonderenswaardig!
Ik ben zo blij u bent mijn vriend, because you are awesome. Love it!
ps - Thanks for the shout-out. You
are too sweet...really.
