Colours of our Nations Flag

I just love these challenges at 'Less is More' and this week it's brilliant. You have to make a card showing the colour of your Nations Flag. Coming from 'Scotland', I have chosen a white base card with a blue organza ribbon from Hobbycraft. The Sentiment and the image are from Woodware 'Scottish Wishes' set. I have had this set for a while and never used it so this was and ideal chance. I have cut the image and the tartan backing paper out with nesties and raised them off the card with sticky pads. Check out Mandi and Chrissie's blogs to see their cards.
