LIM week 231 red white and blue

When I went to the workshop with Ali Reeve the other week we did vaseline resist, I was keen to try at home and so was having a play with one of her union jack stencils. Little did I know that Less is More would then have a red, white and blue theme this week, so it fitted perfectly. I decided to put this little guard on it, which is from a card that was in a London hotel room. I have several from when I used to stay there with work, each with three little images on and far too nice to throw away! I thought he fitted this card perfectly and I then added this SU sentiment.

I also got a union jack die a few months ago and had been playing around with it but my efforts hadn't made it onto a card. So this was what I came up with - again an SU sentiment and some ribbon that I have been hoarding.

I'm also entering at ATCAS as the theme there is Patriotic.

Fun and fabulous Linby love your red, white and blue theme and it's certainly patriotic too which is the theme over at ATCAS if you fancy linking up there we'd love to have your card in the gallery. Thanks as always for playing along at LIM. Sarah x
