This weeks challenge over at colour create is blue, red and white and the extra challengeif you want to do it is "holiday and travel"
This is my take on this weeks challenge I love this stamp, i use him a lot as he is so versatile, mattered and layered the blue on to blue, used red card stock for main card, ribbons and buttons from stash.
