Less is More - Red, White and Blue

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely Jubilee Weekend.

The weather was typically British yesterday (it rained all day here), so I decided I would get in the Jubilee spirit and sit back and watch the Flotilla of boats go down the Thames. It was lovely to watch.  I then watched the delicious Gary Barlow on how he made the Jubilee song.  When the Military Wives and the little girl from Africa sang, it brought a tear to my eye.  I felt very proud to be British.

Anyway, ramble over.  I managed to get some time and make my card for this weeks Less is More challenge, with the theme of Red, White and Blue.  






I've had this handbag stamp a long time and it reminded me of the shape of one the Queen may have.  I got my inspiration from one of Mandi's previous Less is More cards and used the Itty Bitty punch to punch red, white and blue vellum flowers and to cover the bag with those. The sentiment is from Uniko Studio Fontiments stamp set. (Sometimes less is more doesn't mean quick and easy!!)

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out, think I might go into handbag design!!!

Bye for now

    I am a big fan of Gary Barlow, I think he is so talented, what a great ambassador he is for us. A knighthood on the horizon me thinks!
