THE OUTLAWZ 2000 MEMBER PARTY CHALLENGES

I would like to share with you the card I made for the Greetings Challenge on The Outlawz, where the theme is "Where in the world are you?"

As I live the the wonderfully diverse South Africa, I have a myriad of cultures to use as my inspiration.  For my Greetings challenge card, I designed an image called "My South Africa Flag Dress" which has one of the Cuties wearing a summer dress inspired by the colourful South African flag.  The image is not yet available in the digistamps 4 joy store, but I am hoping that it will be released on Sunday.

 

And here is my card for the challenge:

I coloured the image using my alcohol markers and added a black border.  The only embellishments are the two tabs on the right.  I purposely omitted to add any dimensional embellishments so that this card can be sent in the overseas mail without any risk of it being opened by inquisitive mail officials.

The dress lends itself to paper piecing and does not have to be coloured using the South African Flag colours.  I can picture the dress paper pieced in different floral printed DP, can you?

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
