Hold Fast To That Which Is Good....

Happy St George's Day everyone!
I'm flying the flag for England today - though I had to add the Yorkshire Rose (OK maybe it's a Carnation lol)
They say that St George was born in Palestine, but I think he was from around here 'cos there's a pub in the village named after him!
My arch was cut with the Tim Holtz die, and all of the stamps are by Artistic Outpost - the quote is from the Typography plate.
These are the insides of my arches. They've been coloured with spray inks and DI's.
The stamps are a combinations of the two London Plates, London Underground and Loverly London
The two arches are joined together with a strip of seam binding which allows them to stand up and also to close.
I can see me having loads of fun with this die :-)
I'm entering this into the Artistic Outpost April referral,
Fashionable Stamping - sentimental, and
Pan Pastel - red white and blue 
Thanks very much for looking and enjoy your St Georges Day x
