I've made another card with my lovely Solitaire Lace and Jewels from CSDesigns.
When I entered my Red, White and Blue card in challenges, there were a few that had a Patriotic challenge, so I felt I had to do something that feels patriotic for me.

Not all the people that knows me, knows that I am a very big sport fan. I love most kinds of sports. That is one thing I can say about South Africans, we are sport crazy. Our flag is a fabulous mix of colours and the colours of our National Teams are Green and Gold. Those are the colours I used. I added some beads which is part of the national dress of many of the people of South Africa, and also because I love beads. 

I hope you like my card!

And here is a closer look:

Hi Rene, I love the South African feel of your card. Thanks for popping over to my blog. How wierd is it that you work for the same company as I did in SA? I worked for them at head office for 11 years. :)
