Patriotic Paper-Crafting...


Happy Saturday! Happy four-day weekend! (Well four days over here for us and a full week for me - hooray for half term, yay!)

The streets around me are lined with patriotic colours and Union Jacks in preparation for celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee so I thought I'd pop by with a little patriotic number myself:

Tag Thank You
(Maybe more American with its stars and stripes but at least it uses the right colours!)

I was so tempted to re-create my Union Jack card but decided to simply indulge in the colours instead :)

This card is for our new challenge on A Passion for Papertrey - A Right Royal Challenge! We'd love to see how the Jubilee celebrations inspire you, Royalist or not!

My card features both papers from Papertrey Ink and Uniko Studio (The Classics Digital Patterned Paper Collection is my favourite digital collection right now). In fact, Uniko Studio is celebrating the Jubilee too with a sale:

I'd recommend taking a peek: there's 50% off digital products and even 20% off a few fabulous stamp sets!

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I really appreciate your visits! If you've celebrating this weekend then I hope you have a fabulous time and if you're not, I hope you still have a lovely weekend :)

Catch ya later!
