Challenge #19 - By George!

Happy St. George's Day! – St. George is the patron saint of England, so let’s celebrate with our English friends.  The challenge for this week is to create a project that is very English.  Think dragons, knights or roses along with the English Flag.  Note: St. George's Day in the United Kingdom remembers St. George, England's patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23, is seen as England's national day. According to legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.

Let's get inspired by some of our design team members' projects.  First, Myra created this vintage pennant banner honoring St. George.  Click on the image for a closer look!

Susie, our design team member across the pond right in the midst of St. George festivities created these beautiful greeting cards.

Terry honored St. George with this phenomenal tag.

Please show us your St. George spirit and share your projects with us by leaving a link to your gallery or website in your comment!
