Nevaeh- red, white & blue

Today has been a very exciting day here in the UK! It's taken 77 years but finally a British man has won the Wimbledon singles title- it seemed appropriate to make a patriotic card!

I started with an 8x8 card blank which I put through the Grand Callibur to emboss the star design. I inked the edges with Barn Door distress ink and then Salty Ocean on top. I coloured the Nevaeh digi stamp with my promarkers & spectrum noirs sticking to the red, white & blue colour scheme. I mounted her onto the card with 3d foam and then added the 3 paper flowers with the glittery centres to the edge of the card.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly 'anything goes'
Clear It Out 'make someone's day sparkly'
Creative Inspirations 'red, white & blue'
