Canadian Colors

When getting inspiration for my weaved hearts, I stumbled across a pattern with a maple leaf. Hmmm... perfect for a red/white card for a Canadian colleague living in Denmark. Remembered some design paper with the moose - an animal very common in Canada, but not in Denmark. We only see one in the nature, if one of them decides to swim across Oresund from Sweden, which happens once in a while.

I wanted to keep the card a bit rustic, and decided to use baker's twine (locally we call it: document twine) which makes is suitable for my entry at Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #66 - Anything but ribbon.
