Default FEBVSNMINI1 ~ SAT. JAN. 30, 2010 ~ 6pm EST ~ Opening Ceremonies

Title: Opening Ceremonies
Hostess: Mrs. Mac (Shannon)
Keyword: FEBVSNMINI1
Day/Date: Saturday, Jan. 30th
Time: 6:00 PM (EST)


The best part of the Olympics for me are the Opening Ceremonies....followed closely by the Closing Ceremonies. All the singing and dancing and costumes and sometimes even amazing stunts. But my favorite part of all is the parade of nations.

So, my challenge to you is to pick your favorite participating nation's flag, and create a card inspired by it's color scheme. Here's a link to the participating countries.

I created my sample using Melanie's "School, Sports, Spirit" in the colors of the American flag....Red, White and Blue!!! Go Team USA!!!

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE


UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON MONDAY, Feb. 1st.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, FEBVSNMINI1 , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure you layout is seen.

My flag is Canada, so that's red and white... I want our Canadians to win but tonight I will go for the link and find some other flag to inspire me, if that's alright with you.

I need a little white wine myself now that you mentioned it.

Happy cardmaking everybody!
