#184 Land of the Free

Hi, This time it's Peachy's turn to choose the theme over at and she has come up with Land of the Free which means your project MUST have the colours red, white and blue on it. It is not essential for it to be 4th July. 
This last fact is good for me as I'm in the UK.  So this time I have come up with a birthday card for a neighbour. 
I saw a card like this on Pinterest by Wickedly Wonderful Creations and I just knew I had to make one.  The card base is a 6x6 deep red to which I added white card stock, zigzag in grey by Sn@p colour vibe, both sides of a Fab scraps paper called Stars and Stripes and a little Bazzill Basic in Whirlypop. 
The balloon die was free with a magazine and the tiny stamp is a HOTP one I have had for years, oh and  I made the little enamelled dots. The horizontal grey I pleated and then stitched down. There are lots of layers this time and it's quite heavy so thank goodness no posting is required!!

Well now it's your turn to show us your makes, you could be our next guest designer. Leave a little word so I know you have stopped by.
Thanks  Sue
