For Fun - Patriotic Pride

 I must admit when I saw "Patriotic Pride" on the For Fun challenge list I wasn't looking forward to it as I didn't know what sort of card to make apart from an England football one which I didn't fancy - then I had the idea of making a shrink plastic English flag pendant.  (The idea was that if England beat Germany on Sunday I would wear it to work on Monday & as you know that didn't happen lol).  I coloured the red cross with ProMarkers & punched a hole, shrank the plastic then covered the white parts with Glamour Dust & stuck a  heart gem in the centre for good measure.  I'm entering this into the Crazy Challenge which this week is "Make it in an Hour" (which I did easily though this is my 3rd attempt as the other 2 weren't quite right lol).

Sorry for the rubbish photos, you can't really see the sparkle at all. I have so much to do today & Wednesday is usually my day off but I have to work this afternoon til 6.30 so I'm trying to cram everything into this morn - time for a tea break though I think ;)

This is brilliant, I am especially impressed with how well the plastic has held it's shape, I never manage a perfect rectangle. x

What a clever idea Tracey! I love it and you should wear it proud whether you win or not. It's a wonderful creation in support of your country.
