Red, White and Blue

Storms battering us, cats have taken all the comfortable spots and there is housework to be done.   What better reason to have a little play.

Treated myself to crafting for fun.  Took inspiration from the theme of the year which it seems is Red, White and Blue.   Less is More are not looking for the colours this week rather this week their challenge is Something Shiny.  

For this card Sakura Glitter Gel Pen made the lines around the edge of the card.    The Magenta poppy stamp was coloured with Whisper Pens, Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Ink 'Cherry Glow' used to outline the red flower.    Final touch of shine three little self adhesive gems.

Red, White and Blue challenge, Secret Crafter, and Just us Girls.   Also Poodles Parlour, and Sarah Hurley Challenge.
