Brazil Week 3 of Darcy's postcard Challenge

This is my postcard for week three of Darcy's postcard challenge. And it was a challenge this week as I didn't know what I could do for the postcard, so I decided to use the flag colours and the famous carnival< I sat and crocheted the flowers and thought what I could do while I was crocheting and I came up with the idea of a mask and lots of bling!



The back of the postcard,




Reads:-

Dear Penny,
Let's meet and reunite you with this ring. I'm in Brazil at the moment but will have a stop over in London on Wed 1st Feb 2012. Meet me at the bar in Claridges Hotel at 8pm, there will be a cocktail waiting for you at the bar - I will be in my uniform. By the way 'Im intrigued, you say it's no longer yours, I imagine a girl doesn't easily give up a diamond this big!


I hope you like it and thank you all again for all of the lovely comments, I am loving this challenge so much, why didn't they do something like this at school so I enjoyed geography?


I am so looking forward to the next country.
until next time.

Love your mask and the flowers. Captures the flavour of Brazil perfectly. Interesting story -- who can resist a man in uniform and a huge diamond ring?

I agree, I hated geography at school and was rubbish at it, if they had done this I would have learnt so much lol

gorgeous flowers, love the added texture. A uniform and a diamond, hmm what girl could refuse.
