Red White & Blue

It's been a really busy week for me and no time to craft until the weekend, so I holed up in my craft room and made up for it by making 3 cards, I could have posted them as I made them, but when I'm on a crafting roll I don't like to stop in case I lose my mojo! There are lots of Jubilee celebrations going on, none of which I've been involved in, so it was nice to make a red, white and blue card which is a theme for a few challenges this week. Unfortunately I don't have any flags or crowns, so I used a free digi from Anne Bodil as I thought she looked a bit like a Pearly Queen with her jaunty hat and dotty dress which I added 'pearls to' and I cut her out and stuck her down with silicone glue. As usual my photo isn't great - you can't see the embossing on the red card, I really must put some time aside to learn how to take a decent photo!
