A New challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog

Hi there its time for a new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog and this time out theme is 'St Georges Day/English/Patriotic'

For my card I've used a striped bp from Raspberry Road Designs, printed on copier paper and scrunched up layered over some tissue paper that i'd coloured with antique linen distress stain. I've used stamps from Crafty Individuals and Creative Expressions and layered them up. The stamping is topped with some stamped seam binding and buttons with a couple of red bows to finish off. I had to give the rather grumpy looking chap a red bow on his hat, its not just to cheer him up lol, he had writing on his hat and it was in French so I had to cover it up to fit the challenge theme  :-)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Sisterhood of Crafters: Recycle, Reuse, renew (I've used recycles tissue)
Stamptacular Sunday: Anything goes
Sunday Stamper: Man of the world

Thanks for calling by today
