Less is More week 70 Colour


It's the first LIM challenge of the month which means it must be a colour challenge.
On this day of all days in the UK, there could be only one choice of colour and that is...
RED WHITE AND BLUE
On this day all those years ago in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was crowned... and Chrissie is not the only one to remember it! We didn't have a TV and watched it in my grandparents house, in her bedroom actually as she was unwell!

I bought a couple of craft magazines last weekend and they were full of freebies which had to be used and here is what I came up with.
recipe:
Freebie bunting stamp from Craft Stamper
Free Papermania BP
Free Papermania sentiment stamp
Anna Griifin crown stamp
Embossed edges
Pearls
I'm also entering this card into the One Stop Craft Challenge and
the MAWTT challenge

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, it's much appreciated and I love to hear what you think!
