more red white and blue

Good morning my crafty friends and followers - I do hope Friday is being good to you and that you are all happy? My little Penny has gone off to nursery today - and I'm not running - so I have the morning to myself before I venture out to do gardening club at the local primary school - where my Lucy attends!

I'm not very happy with this card - I was so pleased with it then when I added the glittered flag (that I'd made with double sided clear sticky from woodware and glitter and masks, to the acetate the glue showed through - I think I may still send it in to Barbara Gray's classroom cards - but I may add a rosette to the top left hand corner to make it look a little better! Anyway - you live and learn!!!!

So the stamps ate from Clarity - the classroom set from ideal world's last session with barbara - I've used pan pastels along the bottom border and stamped up with the mini stamps - and obviously I've used metal flakes to back the cyclist image up in the O. I wish I'd not put the acetate on now! Totally unnecessary!

Anyway - I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:

  4. Well I think the whole thing is beautiful. I am a flag fan so love that and what better to put on top that glitter!! I have not seen the BG stamp (I don't brayer so I don't really watch her) but it is a fantastic stamp, I may need to reconsider and watch her. Love the way you have used the PPs for the bottom section too. Crafty hugs, Anne x
