Hello everyone and welcome to another fortnight challenge at 

This week I have had a unique challenge.  Our challenge is to pick a country and use the colors of their flag.  Not a difficult challenge.  We are however sponsored by 

and I am on that design team too.  So my card also is for SSD.  Then the third and final challenge is another sponsorship.  SSD is sponsoring 

which is "Know when to fold 'em".  

So for these challenges I chose Philippines Honey from SSD.  She is just so pretty!  I looked up the flag for the Philippines and found that it shares the RED, WHITE & BLUE!  I thought that was cool.  It adds a yellow star-burst on their flag.  I copied the star-burst, cut it out and popped it up on the front of my card.  I then included the actual flag on the inside.

To color her I used Copics and Whisper Strokes markers.  I added some Glossy Accents to her hair to bring out the black.  This is the first time I have done black hair.  I think I did pretty good.  I then used some red and yellow Stickles to sparkle her up.  

The fold I used is called "The Double Dutch Fold".  I got the tutorial from Shelly's Images.  The DP are some oriental papers I had in my scraps and the papers cut from the Spellbinders die are from DBS DigiScraps and Create with TLC.  The other papers are Bazzill.    The moon charm was in my stash and I have no idea where I got it.  The pearls are from Queen & Co. 

Well I hope you have enjoyed your visit today.  Please stop by CWWC, SSD and TCC and see all the other fabulous creations that have been made.  Then get busy crafting and come back to enter the challenges.
