Crafting For All Seasons - Patriotic/Military/Fireworks

Hello :)  I have made this card super early as we move next week ... so today's date is actually the 7th of June .. but you will be seeing this on the 27th June!  I'm not sure how long I will be without computer or internet access so thought I had better play it safe.

Our new challenge at Crafting For All Seasons is
Patriotic or Military or Fireworks

We are being sponsored by
and there are some fabulous prizes from our lovely sponsors.

The Australian Flag is based on the Blue Ensign. It is a plain blue flag with the British Union Jack in the upper corner of the hoist. This symbolises both Australia's colonial background and the present-day membership of the British Commonwealth. Underneath is the seven-pointed Commonwealth star. Each point represents either a state or territory. On the right hand side there are five white stars in the shape of the Southern Cross, the constellation most characteristic of the Australian sky at night.

I decided to go Patriotic and I have based my colours on the Australian flag.  My other option was going to be to use the typical Aussie colours of Green and Gold ... but this gorgeous image called Bubbles from Saturated Canary just didn't suit those colours I thought.

 I have coloured Bubbles using Copic Markers and a little bit of Spica Pen.  For the Bubbles floating around her I coloured them in spica and then covered them with some little 'Droplets' from Kaisercraft.
The flowers were made from a Marianne Design Craftables Die and I added a little bit of bling in the centre.
Cardstock is from a We R Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles pack.

Thank you so much for stopping by .... I hope that I am up and running again by now .. but if not I will be back soon ..... I'm sure I will be having serious craft and blog withdrawals.
