Red, white and blue at ABC Challenges

Good Monday morning all.  The sun is out - so far anyway, let's hope it stays a while.  This week at ABC Challenges we have a colour challenge - Red, White and Blue.

I just love the new Ahoy Range from Papermania and of course the colours are perfect. I made this for a (cardmaking mad) neighbour's little boy's birthday.

I covered a Papermania square card blank with the patterned paper before cutting a circle from the centre with Sizzix framelits, then cut a frame and an acetate circle.  I had the waves at a steep angle through the porthole but I started to get seasick! I'd get seasick in the bath LOL! 

I hope you'll join us over at ABC Challenges this week.
