Keep Calm and Put The Kettle On - Inky Impressions Challenge - Red, White and Blue

Wednesday means a new Inky Impressions Challenge and this week we want to see you using Red, White and Blue!
It doesn't have to be a Patriotic card, just use the 3 colors together and you are good to go!
I decided to go back home to Great Britain for my card and got to use some of the crafting goodies I bought last year when we went home for the Summer.

DL Art - Patriotic
Partytime Tuesdays - Patriotic
Simon Says Stamp - Patriotic
Simply Create Too - Your Flags Colors

Card Recipe:
Image - British Flag Lili
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment and Cup Paper - Kanban
Spotty Paper - Portobello Road by Papermania
Doily Die - English Tea Party by Cheery Lynn Designs
Flag Buttons - Portobello Road by Papermania
Rhinestones - Michaels









Doesn't Lili look great and that sentiment is just so apt as we Brits sure do like our tea!
I've always thought it nice that the two countries I have called home have the same colors in their flags and so today I remember the last day of British rule and tomorrow I'll join in and celebrate America's Birthday!
So now it's your turn and to get more inspiration run over to the Inky Impressions Challenge to see my teammates creations.
