I Love Holland

The Netherlands is in a very festive mood
this weekend until Tuesday.
Today is the birthday of our crown prince Willem-Alexander
and he will be inaugurated as the new King on Tuesday.
So you can imagine all the orange
gadgets that can be found and
all the orange flags that are hanging everywhere.

Yes, orange is our national color,
 next to the Dutch red white and blue.
This is because the Queens is
from The House of Orange.

 These cards are made with a Technique Junkies technique
called Designer Paper Starbust
and is from the April/May 201 newsletter.

I used Michael Strong's  tulips and the mini heart stamps
with some scrapbook paper in the back.
The stamps are embossed in white on colored paper.

On both cards i used a few sticky gemstones to give the
cards some extra bling.
Have a creative day!

Hi Hettie,
It sounds like it's celebrations all round in Holland so I hope you are having fun. I hope we see some of it on our TV.
