Crafts Galore Encore July 2017

Hello everybody. Today I have a card in a popular colourway. Red, white and blue are the colours of the flags for three of the countries I have lived in and still have family in. Can you guess which counties they are?

I have made this card for our July challenge on the  
Thank you to everyone who joined in with June's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:
who are offering 3 digis from their Etsy store to the winner.

My card is 7"x 7" (18cm x 18cm).

I started by adding red and blue DecoArt sprays to a white piece of card and matting it onto blue card before fixing it to my card blank.

I chose to work with an old Oddball Art image I had. The actual image is called Chloe and has been revamped so the current version has different hair. I coloured her in with my Copics and fussy cut her out before adding to my card front with foam pads.

I used a Memory Box die to cut the heart border from card I'd sprayed red and matted it onto blue card. I added some of the cut out hearts around the image and finished off with a seam binding bow I'd dyed red.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your "Anything Goes" creations.
BTW, the three countries are England, France and the USA. Were you right?
