Red, White & Blue at Cupcake

Good morning! Well, I have to say that we are having a very "English" summer here in France (it's raining lots)... so much so that cutting the lawn has now become one of my favourite hobbies (well hubby's really but I did cut it once the other week)! I'm not used to seeing green grass... we usually have a straw coloured lawn!

Anyway, enough waffle... this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge Donna has chosen RED, WHITE & BLUE as our theme! Well, as you know, I'm a bit partial to those colours in a flag form (see last post)... so I've decided to go with a very British design! The flags are stamped in two steps (the blue then the red seperately) to form a background paper, then I simply stamped the crown image, layered it and added some gems... and there you have it!

We have two sponsors this week, In 2 Stamps are giving away a €10 gift voucher, and Prairie Fairy are giving away a $10 gift certificate! So pop by the Cupcake blog to get some ideas from my fellow DT buddies, and join us for the challenge!

Thanks for your visit today!
