Colours of Australia's flag

A fun colour challenge at Less is More this week - and it is the colours of your countries flag.  As a member of the British Commonwealth, Australia's flag incorporates the red, white and blue of the Union Jack, as well as the stars of the Southern Cross plus an extra 7-pointed star known as the Commonwealth Star - in recognition of the Federation (then Commonwealth) of Australia.  My picture alternates between the maritime flag (red background) and the country flag.




Here is my card in red, white and blue - photographed at night, so it's a little dark!  I'll try again in the morning to achieve a better colour.



Card recipe:
Dies - Avery Elle Burst Die, Poppy Stamps Marina Sailboat, 
Stamps - Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Sentimenst and Labeller Alphabet
Ink - Stampin' Up! Real Red, Versamark and white embossing powder
