Red, white and Blue....

At last I've got around to making something with the lovely Union Jack set from Crafty Individuals!
I've teamed it up with some of the Portobello Road papers from Papermania, which seemed to fit perfectly:
Papermania have also got some printed ribbons to match, but I thought I'd make my own. The beads on the side are threaded onto staples (a bit fiddly!) and in the centre onto a silver hoop earring.
I've used Faded Jeans and Festive Berries Distress inkpads for stamping and colouring.

Thanks for looking!

ohh glouriously faded, like a victorian seaside town, splendour tarnished by the salt.

Love this card Helen - you are soo brave with the colours - I can't quite get to grips with the red and blue thing, but it has really worked well for you. Maybe I should be braver! Jean x
