Queens birthday!!!

Ok with the jubilee in full swing and the Queens Birthday today , its time for another card, I have again kept with the theme of the weekend

I started with a blank shaped card, I used Tim Holtz tape for the back ground this was travel tape, then got a red marker pen and outlined the edge.
then i found a postcard style piece of paper, I added that at a jaunty angle then found 4 blue buttons for corners on the top two buttons I got a piece of twine from one button to the next so making a washing line, i then cut out and made some bunting from union jack paper red white and blue,
found some mini pegs to peg up my bunting I stamped on each piece of bunting a letter spelling out London 
I then added a piece of union jack card slightly straighter on my postcard paper
I purchased some GB ribbon a while back and added that to the bottom with a GB bow
I then stamped a sentiment on card and using my spellbinders stamp die I cut that out backed it with black card and used antique linen distress ink over my sentiment 
Overall I was happy with the way this card came out, as with any card I never know were it will end, I never set out to do a style I make a lot up as I go along, chopping and changing on the way, I have been known to spend in total 3 hours on one card but that's because im so fussy, 
I am sure the queen would have loved to get this card in the post !!!
