Red,White and Blue

Morning and I have two DT posts today-the 2nd one is for the "Red,White and Blue" challenge at Simply Create Too.
Looking through my stash for a suitable stamp/image I found this pre-coloured topper from goodness knows where or even how long I have had it-so it's time has come lol.I used a very neglected corner die from TH with scrap of red card behind one and blue behind the other,a neglected corner stamp from Lisa Horton,sentiment was a craft mag freebie found already stamped in oddment box and a strip of dry wall mesh found at back of drawer-quite liked this one lol.
