Red, White and Blue girly card

Good morning, here is another card I created yesterday. The image is from Make it Crafty, she's so much fun to colour but is very difficult for my amateur abilities at the same time so please don't look too carefully haha. 

I love this beautiful red flourish from my company, Flourish with a Bling. My business partner/friend Kate designed this flourish and named it after her dog Jessie. It comes in black as well.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
