LIM Week 27 Challenge - Patriotic Lolliop

Hi everyone.  This weeks challenge by the lovely Chrissie and Mandi over at Less Is More is to make a card in the colours of your countries flag.  I've used the red white and blue of the Union Jack flag of England.

I printed two strips of paper, one in red with a white border, the other in blue. Both strips are 12" long, but I slightly varied the width.  I pleated them both and layered the blue over the red, added a button, then used a cotton bud stick and tied with red and blue narrow ribbon.  Sentiments stamps are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by today xx
