The Pixie Cottage Challenge #23 - Make Mine Patriotic

It's time for another Once Upon A Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage with another fabulous sketch from Pam

Along with the sketch we have the added option "Make Mine Patriotic".
We love to see a card celebrating an aspect of your country, or choose the colors of your country's flag, anything that makes you proud to be who you are!
Now with it being World Cup time and me being English there really wasn't much doubt which direction my card would take:)

And to get you in the mood here is my favorite footie song this year

Paper Playtime - Flag Day (choose any combo of red, white and blue)
Daring Cardmakers - The World is Your Oyster
Crafty Ann's - Fly the Flag
Magical Crafts - Something for a Man (all the men I know love sports)
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Masculine
Totally Gorjuss - For The Boys
CRAFT - Mans card
Crafty Cardmakers - Cards for Men
Cupcake Crafts - One for The Boys
Incy Wincy - One for The Guys
Pollycraft - Let Have a Sing Song (definitely a lot of singing at footie matches and this card was certainly inspired by "3 Lions")
Stamp N Doodle - Photo Inspiration "Africa" (although my lion is far too cute to be out on the plains ;))
Creative Craft Challenges - For The Man in Your Life
A Crafty Little Place - One for the Boys
Creative Inspirations - One for The Boys
Stampin Royalty - Masculine Project
Crazy Amigos - The World Cup

Card Recipe:
Image - Loves A Lot Lion by Eileen Gutierrez
Paper - Stash
Medium - Copic Markers
Football - Stick It Felt
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Printed in Twelve Ton Goldfish font

I loved the felt football so much that I added one inside too :)

Oh isn't this the cutest Lion ever?
I hope you've enjoyed my little trip back home today and we'd love to see your Patriotic creations!
