Less is more challenge - Red and white!!!

Hiya Everyone,

I've noticed that I've gained loads of new followers in the last week so a big howdy to all my new and old followers!!! I hope you are all well and aren't too close to all the troubled areas in the UK right now. The mindless violence is just making matters worse and I really feel for those affected by all this....big hugs!!!

As my DT work is a little quiet right now (although I have lots lined up now...typical Lol) I tried my best to enter the less is more challenge as I do like to enter but don't always have the time. The theme is red and white as in the St George's flag or Red, white and blue as in the Union Jack. I had a rummage in my bit box so decided to use up a bit of red and white gingham paper and a little red card. The cherries from are a spin on a card I made ages ago and what I was going to make with the fruity theme last week that I missed.

It's quite plain and I'm not sure I like it but I'm not too worried as it didn't take very long to make. I haven't added a sentiment as I intend to keep it in my box so I may add one later.

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

Less is more - Red and white
Crafty pad - Gone fruity

Thanks for looking!!!
