Colours of my country....

Hi Susan here....

This is my second card as a guest for Creative Card Crew so exciting. The challenge this week is 'Colours of your country'.  For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from the design team please call across to the Creative Card Crew Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us all.....

Now to my card....

I have used card from The Paper Mill Shop. My 'Union Jack Flag' is a download from the internet. All the edges have been distressed. I also did some dry embossing on the white scalloped card. I didn't have any blue ribbon the shade I wanted so I coloured my piece of ribbon with inks. My ribbon and pearls are from our local market.

My digi image'Nancy with Bouquet' has been designed by Marina Neira and is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store. I have used Promarkers and chalks to colour the image.

I made the three white/red flowers using a punch the other flowers are from Hobby Craft.
