Stamp Something - colours of your flag

This is my first ever card as a fully fledged member of Stamp Something DT. Am I proud or what!!

To introduce the new DT our challenge this time is to USE COLOURS OF YOUR FLAG.

I am Estonian living in Ireland so it had me stumped for a while, eventually I decided to go with the flag of the country I by now consider to be my home - the orange, green and white of Ireland.

The image is from Hambo Stamps, boy do I love them, real fun and a joy to colour! Colouring was (of course) done by Copics with some added Spica and Sakura glitter accents. Sentiments were computer generated. The background and matting for the image was cut with Nesties Circles and Pinking Circles.

The papers are from Pink Paislee (all slightly sponged with Distress Inks) and glitter strips from Papermania. The image background was embossed with Cuttlebug folder. As a last touch I popped some Card Candy into the corners. It's a simple but bright and fun card - at least in my opinion!! :D

Pants and scarf: BG99, G85, YG67, YG63, YG03, YG00
Bag: YG99, YG95, YG94, YG91
Vest, sock, YR18, YR14, YR07, YR04, Y17, Y28
Shirt, shoes:C8/7/5/3/1/00
Sword:YR14, YR23, YR17, Y35, YR0000, Y28
Beard: W3/1/00
Wooden leg: E57/35/31/97

Dont forget to check out the work of the rest of the DT and then get cracking on the card in the colours of your flag.

I would also like to enter the following challenges:

The Crafty Pad - embossing
Stampavie and more - sparkling
Crafty Cardmakers - inky fingers
Raise The Bar - colours of your flag
