World Card Making Day --The Journey Continues

There were so many challenges yesterday for WCMD. No way to do them all. I probably could have combined some challenges but that would have stressed me out and this craft shouldn't be about stress! Anyway, I did get several projects completed yesterday but I didn't have the time or mojo for one last project that I wanted to try, so I did it today. This was one of the SCS WCMD challenges (there were many). This one was sponsored by Verve and it included choosing the flag of a country and using that flag's colors to create a card.

I chose the country of Georgia (not the state) whose flag includes the colors of burgundy, black and white. I love how striking this combination is. I have been wanting to use the ornament and my copic markers ever since I got in my recent Verve order, but there just hasn't been time. Now, I can't wait to try this with other colors, too. It is just a gorgeous image (actually, one of several gorgeous images in this set). I blended R37, R39, and R59 for this ornament and then added some stickles for added sparkle.
World Card Making Day was lots of fun, but I think I'm ready to tackle a few other kinds of projects now. I've still got a few more things I've created this weekend to show you, but I'll save that for another day. Hope your WCMD was just Zippy!
