Patriotic Nelly

Good Morning,

Well a little break for us all and hopefully a bit of play time. Hope the weather stays nice (although it's raining here this morning) for all the street parties that are taking place over this holiday.

My card today is in keeping with all the union jacks about at the moment. I have added a crafters companion image (again) which was coloured with spectrum noirs & chalks. The bunting was cut on the silhouette and has had distress ink added to the edges and stamped with an alphabet set from dimension fourth. Bakers twine has been threaded through the holes to string the word together. A distressed die cut border has been used across the centre which has had ribbon and brads added to it for that finishing touch

I would like to enter the following:

Celebrate the occasion - anything goes
Cupcake craft challenge - Royalty
Creative craft challenge - red white & blue
My Mum's craft shop - red white & blue
Lili's Little Fairies - anything goes

Enjoy the bank holiday
Happy crafting
Carole xXx
