Happy 143rd Birthday Canada!

I have been fortunate enough to travel to over 20 countries around the world but I must say that I love the country I live in and am very proud to be Canadian. Happy Birthday Canada! Thanks for being an amazing place to live. This card was inspired by Canada and by a card in the latest edition of Paper Crafts Magazine (ETA - Charlene Austin's card on page 43).
ETA - I was crafting with my friend Brandy when I made this and she said "that would be a good masculine card". Can't say that I have ever inadvertently made a masculine card before, guess there is a first time for everything!

Here is this month's calendar page from my little square calendar (one of three A Muse calendars I did this year.

To my fellow Canadians, I hope you are having a fabulous Canada day. Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate it. If you are looking for my challenge, it's here.
