A little Patriotism!

Evening! I hope you've had a good Sunday! Jamie was working and I seemed to have slept through most of it - I must have needed it!! I thought I'd make this little card though while the football is on - the last match for a while - hurrah! ;-)
I really wanted to join in this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge of 6 patterned papers. (Sometimes I read a challenge and I can't get it out of my head until I've done somethng with it - just me?!)
So I used various bits from my scrap drawers to make this patriotic little number! I know we don't send anything like this in the Uk so I made it a sort of 'Way to go/Congrats' type of card. I hope you like it and thanks for stopping in!
