Keep Calm and Carry On

This was another of the samples I made recently for Stamposaurus using the keep calm and bunting stamps. I teamed them with Papermania Portobello Road paper and some punched stars. I coloured the flags with Promarker and added some faux stitching. I can see me using these a lot especially this year as this phrase is everywhere and union jacks are very popular with the Olympics and Queen's Diamond Jubilee coming up in the Summer.

I have scheduled this post as we were at the NEC yesterday and will be out food shopping this morning. If you would like the chance to win a set of the bunting stamps please see my candy post above.

This would be suitable for 4.th of July, too :) The brit. flag as a background, that's a great idea!
