Less is More week 27 Colour

This week's challenge over at Less is More is to use the colours of your National Flag and I decided to use red and white, the colours of the flag of St George for England!
It's most unusual for me to come up with any ideas on the same day as the LIM challenge is posted but I had a couple of ideas and even stopped emptying the dishwasher to have a crafty go:))
I hope my first card has enough "white space" on it but I liked it anyway :o
 I used red linen card and my SU bird punch which I love and punched the edge of the white card with MS daisy punch. The sentiment I stamped with versamark and embossed with white EP. The birds and sentiment are raised with foam dots.



                                           My flag










My second card was very easy using red card and a doily as a topper with a rose made of the same card. the sentiment was stamped and embossed with versamark and white EP and 2 eyelets with red ribbon threaded through.
Thanks for looking and I love to read all your comments:)

Both of these are great and I have some of those doilies lurking around somewhere. Good idea to choose the St George flag rather than the obvious R, W and B.
