Paper Playtime Challenge #78 ~ Red, White and Blue

If you are looking for the CANADA DAY BLOG HOP please click HERE!!

Good Monday morning, my friends!  It is the first Monday of the month and that means a new challenge at Paper Playtime.  Today's theme is red, white and blue using a die cut on your project.  Just as a side note, thank you for all who joined us for our last challenge "Anything Goes" with a sentiment ~ there were 365 amazing entries.  Red, white and blue usually means patriotic projects and mine is no exception; well, except the fact that I am in Canada so I put that spin on it.  The die cuts I used were my Spellbinders for this card.  The image is of the city where I grew up in (Toronto, Ontario) and one of our great tourist attractions called the CN tower.
