King Day

Today it is "Kingday"in The Netherlands and even
google knows about it. We celebrate the birthday of
our King Willem-Alexander.
It is a free day and all around the country there are
celebrations, flee markets and musical festivals.
With our national flag we have a special orange pennant,
that points to a celebration in the Royal Home.
The Roals are from The House of Orange, that is why
today everything is colored orange, even the flowers:
Our beautiful azalea is starting to bloom today!
So this gave me the idea to make some orange colored cards.
Here are the two cards I made.
I used a Stampin'Up! set called Just Because.

The background to my card is made with my
favorite technique: dirict to paper technique.
Add some colors to the craft sheet and add some
water. Now take the paper and get the color 
on your paper by putting the paper to the craft sheet.

Here the finished cards with the 
stamped image added to the orange background.

The image is colored with SU! blending pens
and splattered with a little orange ink.

The sentiment is from another SU! set called
Hello Cupcake.

Here you see the other card, with another
ribbon and image. These plants are so
versetile and easy to color. For some bling
I added little sticky gemstones to both cards.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!

Your cards are beautiful, Hetty. Kings day sounds like a fun day to be free. Cool how Google celebrated it too.

Enjoy your celebrations Hetty. Your card is beautiful, I love the sunny colours.
Our orange azalea is still in tight buds. It will be a few weeks before we see it out I think.

I love your King Day cards, Hetty! The color combo you used is so pretty and so it the layout! You did a great job of coloring the stamped flowers and flowerpot too! It's fun to learn of your special holidays where you live! Thanks so much!
