They're Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace

Well what a weekend! I hope you all enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations despite the weather.
I'm still in red, white and blue crafting mode and although I don't usually go for the cute style of cards, I couldn't resist this Forever Friends stamp from DoCrafts. I used a gatefold card and paper from the Best of British collection. The image I stamped, coloured with Promarkers and cut out to layer onto the card. With the sentiment You are The Best, this card would be perfect for Father's Day too.
