Crafty Ann Challenge#16

Good Afternoon. The weather can not make up it's mind today what it is going to do. I have just had a manicure/eyebrow wax done at home. First time I have had this done at home and it seemed quite strange. I usually go and have them done at a saloon but they have gone bust, which is a shame as for one thing they sold my cards there and also I enjoyed going out to have them done. The girl who use to do them at the saloon has started up a mobile business.

My card today is for Crafty Ann Challenge#16 - Fly the Flag. It has to be National Flag colours + skin,stem,leaf tones. To enter this challenge click here .

For my card I am backing England, Red/White/Blue. The bp is "Polished Stone Brights - Royal Blue" from Crafty Ann. It has been printed onto Satin Photographic paper. The image is "Poppies" from Paper Ink Color. The colouring medium is Promarkers. The butterfly wings have been picked out in places with "Cosmic Twinkles" Aqua Twinkles. The white ribbon is from my stash.

Thank you for looking and I hope the weather is kind to you today.
