Still Call Australia Home

My card today features UK Betty a retired stamp from Simply B Stamps all in red, white and blue.

I’ve drawn in some white stars in a very bad Southern Cross formation to turn her into an Australian Betty as this card is heading to a colleague who is going to work overseas for 12 months.  It’s to remind him that Australia is home and therefore he has to come back!

I followed a sketch from Die Cuttin’ Diva’s Challenge Blog that resembled the Australia flag too.  The challenge also called for a die cut, I didn’t have a star die so I cut a Spellbinders’ pennant shape seven times to make a Federation Star (the sixth star on the Australian flag).
