DCM June Colour Combo Challenge

This week it's the return of our monthly colour dare at Daring Cardmakers and I'm sure our UK visitors can guess what colours Nat has chosen! :)

Yes, in honour of the upcoming festivities going on this weekend to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the colours Nat has chosen are Red, White, and Blue. Well it was hard not to... as they are everywhere at the moment. :)

Here's a gorgeous pic as inspiration showing just how lovely this colour combo can be in various shades and hues:

Here is my card...

I love these chipboard banners from Fancy Pants and knew that my red, white, blue card would have to include these.  They looked quite plain so I added some airmail bakers twine, buttons and small off white roses.  

I layered up some papers from MME and Cosmo Cricket's Tea for Two set, added a large strip of blue/white grosgrain ribbon, which I folded in half and cut diagonally to create the fork.  The sentiment is from WMS and I found this red flower I had made from a zip a while ago in my stash.  I just added a small red rose to the centre, tucked a couple of green leaf pins and a simple white satin bow.  

Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team's cards.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - MME and Cosmo Cricket Tea for Two from The Ribbon Reel
Stamp - Sentiment from WMS
Chipboard - Banners and Heart from Fancy Pants
Other - Leaf Pins from The Ribbon Reel, Buttons, Roses and Zip from stash
