Make My Monday- Tricoleur

     Hi everyone the continuing theme over at MMM is FRENCH and 

This week we want to see the 
added to your projects - that would be the colours BLUE, WHITE AND RED.

 I struggled last week and resorted to a digital project and this week is a nightmare!
Red, White and Blue is not a colour combo that I use regularly and I'm very short on appropriate stamps. I was sorting through a box of small stamps and came across a set of small patterned squares, one of which was a fleur de lys design. So this is what I created, what do you think?

4" square base card
Fleur de lys patterned tile stamp
SU Rose Red ink
Stormy Skies DI
SeeDee sentiment 
Red gem

Hopefully next week's challenge will be easier:)
We had a lovely day yesterday, we popped down to Portsmouth and took Charlie out for lunch:) 

 Cute eh? Very biased I'm afraid :-)
 Thanks for your visit, please leave a comment so that I can visit you.

It is a beautiful card, but it is totally outshone by beautiful pictures of Charlie - can't believe how big he is now. He is totally gorgeous and that smile will have girls swooning over him when he is older, I am sure!

Wow, I really love how you've used the theme of red, white and blue! (had to laugh when I read you had trouble with it too - same here!). The little tile is such a beautiful image and I love the writing going round the outside - very clever!
Little cutie in the buggy there.
