CAS Holiday Challenge 11:00 AM: Flag Fun

The first challenge I'm hosting at the SCS CAS Holiday Challenge is Flag Fun. Be inspired by any state or national flag!

I have two cards to share, both inspired by state flags.

First up, many state flags have a blue background with a central image, which I thought would make a lovely Christmas card, especially using a solid white image a la South Carolina's flag.

Next, Rhode Island provided the layout for this card: white background, banner, and central image. I skipped the stars and made the card a rectangle rather than a square. I also changed the color scheme.

Why is it that no state flags feature pink as the predominant color?

Can't wait to see what everyone else makes with Flag Fun! To play along with the challenges, go to THIS THREAD in the Challenges Forum at Splitcoast. Fresh challenges are being posted all day long, on every hour.

  1. Very smart idea for a Christmas card, I'm also learning a lot about the USA.
    P.S. I don't know of any country with pink on their flag, must be a boy thing.
