Red,white and blue

Afternoon folks.
It's been a bit of a scorcher today, not what we were expecting. The breeze has made it bareable but when I came back after nipping into Sainsbugs I almost burnt my hand on the steering wheel! 
Anyway Andy Murray is two sets down at Wimbledon so I can't bring myself to watch so I did the next best thing and did a bit of crafting!
Here is the result.

I made this with a couple of challenges in mind including, Less is More -Red, White and Blue and CASology - Repeat.
I repeat stamped the pressie from the STAMPlorations Party Mates set in Versamark then embossed in clear powder. Then stamped again in Memento and coloured using Copics before fussy cutting.
I got my new Stampin Up Endless Birthday Wishes set out to stamp on the greeting banner. 
Husband is still on the tractor trying to weed wipe the thistles, a never ending task so we will have a quick salad tea I think.

I'm joining in the fun over at -

We'd love you to display our banner    
Red white and blue
