I have had visitors today, feels like a revolving door!! Sorry I am late ... I did attempt to watercolour - changed my mind and sponged instead. It is hard to see in the picture, but I have Canada's moto on the card - From Sea to Shining Sea. I added the Canadian Beaver and cut out another one, styled and attached on foam dots. Added the field grasses and some gems and attached the top panels on foam strips. Thanks for looking ... and thanks for your support today. You are all the best!
* I think I might add some more gems to the bottom right.

Wonderful tribute card to your beautiful country, Kia. Love the addition of the beaver. (Brought back memories of eating "beaver tails" in Ottawa....which were quite yummy.) : ) Your leaf turned out beautifully.

How fabulous to get in all these things that represent your country! I love the sponged maple leaf, the beaver and reeds, and I think the gems you added are perfect as they are. Thanks for suggesting a theme for us today. It was a pleasure to join you, Kia.

Fabulous card Kia, Great job today for helping to get us started. I really loved your idea about making our own stencils. It was fun and I got to try a new technique. Love your big maple leaf and the stamped moto
