La La Land Crafts 4 Kids Contest #20

Hi everyone!  I'm back with my project for this week's contest at La La Land Crafts 4 Kids.  The contest theme this week is to use the colors of your country's flag.  I made a stair step card.  The bottom layer has water dp and three turtles.  The middle layer has homemade grass dp and a saying which I put inside of the french pastry doily die.  The top layer has Hula Marci and the Butterfly Set 1 die.  Yes, that's right La La Land Crafts is now selling their own dies.  I used three of the butterflies and put them on wire.
Even though I added some colors, you can still see the red, white, and blue.
You can find Hula Marci, the Aloha sentiment, the turtles, and the Butterfly Set 1 die here.
Hope you like! :)
