Rule Britannia....

Hello all...
Here in Great Britain we are feeling very patriotic and this is showing in our cardmaking...
In my little corner of West Sussex, the local school has had a fabulous Jubilee Fair and at the school where I work we had a whole day of celebrations...
making crowns, bunting and having our own street party.

This is a new stamp from Wild Rose Studio...little Bella with balloons and I have used it a few times but I just had to use the Red, White and Blue colour scheme.

Coloured in with Promarkers and shaded with pencils. 

 I added some heart die cuts from a new Kanban kit and an oval greeting. I layered these on with foam pads for extra dimension.

 The Blue gingham and Red spot paper is also Wild Rose Studio and I added a red organza bow and some red ric rac.
My favourite thing at the moment is bunting so I had to have a little bit of this above the balloons.

Some challenges...
Delightful Sketches...Red, White and Blue
Craft Your Days Away...Red ,White and Blue
Creative Card Crew...Dimension 
My Mums Craft Shop...Red, White and Blue

If you are in the UK...enjoy your day whatever you do.
We will be watching the London Celebrations on the TV and then having a bit of a do with the neighbours.
Thje bunting is up and the BBQ's are being primed.
Fingers crossed for a dry sunny day.
