Rule Britannia!!!!!.....

 How canny were Papermania in releasing Portobello Road this year??!!! The Olympics, The Queen's Diamond Jubilee?? There are so many occasions that you can use these fab papers for, as seen in Sofia's card yesterday. I love this Union Jack paper! It has teeny red roses in the red portions of the flag making it quite feminine, but you could easily make a masculine version of this card by using the blue crown paper (as seen on the front panel) and changing the sentiment to 'King for a day!'
For this card I used a square z-fold base card and the 6x6 paper pack because the flag paper sits better on the 6x6 card, although you could use the 12x12 paper (which I also have!) on an 8x8 square card. I used one piece of the UJ paper on the inside back of the card and a 1/2 sheet for the front after carefully matching and cutting the 2nd piece, so that when closed the front appears to be a complete UJ.
The shaped front panel was cut from red & white cardstock and blue crown paper. A scalloped embossed circle holds a golden crown with a red lining. A few gems give the crown some regal bling!
A plump red sheer ribbon bow and a blue ribbon rose with a gem adhered to the centre of it completes the front of the card.
For the inside of the card I adhered another, slightly smaller red and white panel, adding 'Queen' cut from gold mirri and 'for a day'  which was computer generated onto Safmat.
