Red, White and Blue two!

Good afternoon!
I hope everyone had a fab weekend, and that those of you in the UK that held, or attended Jubilee parties had a great time! I went to Jen's and we had a Jubilee painting party and a bbq! It was lots of fun! :)

So I am here with another card for the Less Is More Red, White and Blue challenge...
 This is a little card I made, using a couple of new techniques...The aperture is a frame, made using the instructions in this month's Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. It's not perfect but I like the effect! The flower is created by punching out 8 hearts, folding them in half and sticking them onto a tiny circle. I saw this on someone's blog earlier in the week....I'm sorry but I don't know where! In hindsight, I would have been better using paper than card as the flower doesn't 'sit' quite right...
I've made this to thank my neighbours for looking after Coco, our cat , and keeping my garden alive whilst we were in Wales :)

Ok, unfortunately, I have to go to work now! Oh well....Holidays don't last forever! ;)

  1. The flower is stunning Lizy and I like the way it doesn't lie flat. It looks beautiful against the blue of the aperture and makes the card look more mediterranean than patriotic! It's always sad when the holidays come to an end. Hugs, Vicky x
