Less Is More with Red White and Blue

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
I am back to earth after the celebrations, we had a great Hog Roast in a Barn which goes without saying it was line dancing, a bar and a raffle.  Had some gorgeous crackling but did not over do it, Matt won on the raffle, and got tickets for swimming (not our thing) but gave the tickets to Hannah and Mike for a trip out :)  The street party was not on the street, but plan B was in the barn and a good day had by all.  Matt went fishing and came second - and entered into the big win match at the end of the season.  We went to Donny Dome to the fishing show, Matt got a new pole, a pole rest and Mike got some new alarms.  The weather held to fill our skip and now we can get into the garage...........................a good extended jubilee weekend so far.

Yesterday I managed to get a couple of cards done for my DT work, and also this little quickie.  The challenge at Less Is More this week is as expected Red, White and Blue.  So here is what I came up with.
Base card is blue with the interior being white, just perfect for the inner sentiment.  The red ribbon is run through, tied in a little bow behind.  Two little bows with diamante's either side the Cheery Lynn die heart, such a pretty die this one.  The words are from some very old metal dies from cuttlebug don't think I have actually used them before, came across them whilst looking for my holly die, but think they will be coming out to play more often now.  

I quite like this one, what do you think?

Well I would like to say hello to my new followers and thank all of my followers and visitors for the time taken to leave such inspirational comments.  I love being able to hop over to see all of your own beautiful creations.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
