Show your colors

Hello, thank you for swinging by.
My card today features Tilda with flag from the new Apple Cherry collection. I could not resist to alter the flag with a pen and some extra color into “MY” colors. :-) Yes, i live in the US but i am through and through German from the area Stuttgart/Munich.

I had the papers for this card already picked when the idea with the flag came to mind.. so getting the black/red and yellow right for my pattern paper wasn’t really easy. Especially with the red i had problems.. so there is a lot of mixing with different colors of Copic markers going on. This new paper i have, is really nice and forgiving if you go over and over and add.. which was definitely a plus on this card.

hahahaha… yes as much as iam proud to be German.. i do not own a single German sentiment. I was considering to print one with the Computer but my mind was stuck with that circular embellishment i wanted on that spot. Too sad that the German Oktoberfest is already over. This would make a nice card for someone who loves to go there….

Hallo liebe Claudia,

Deine Karte ist ein Traum. Ich musste lächeln als ich die Fahne sah und als ich den Text las war alles klar.

Deinem Sohn nachträglich noch alles, alles Gute!

Liebe Grüße aus dem Münchner Raum

Hi Claudia,
I can't believe I am early enough to be close to the top of your comments for a change :o)
I think you card is wonderful. I love that you made the flag of your homeland. Your colouring as always is terrific. Very pretty MS punch and leaf dies are wonderful. Tilda is marching proud :o)

I must agree with Candy in her comment. Cool what you did with the flag. Possible to make it for all the countries you'd like.
Allways nice to see how you do the coloring.
