This week's Midweek Throwdown on Operation Write Home's blog is to make a card using the color of your state flag. I live in Washington state and here's the flag.
I used mostly solid colored cardstock for my card with just a small square of patterned paper from Echo Park's Scoot line. Even though I used way more white on my card than is on the flag, I think it works.
