London Calling

Here's a British flavoured card in honour of the Olympics.
 My daughter and I were in England this spring for a Band trip. We had a fabulous time together. In Oxford, our last place to visit, I browsed the Magazine stands and bought a CraftsBeautiful magazine with this great stamp in it and it included the papers, too! So I pulled them out to play with finally!



We're continuing to watch all the Olympics. My oldest loves Synchro so we were up this morning to watch the duet finals. Our Canadians routine was so dynamic!

smiles,
Laurie

  2. It doesn't get much more British than that! What a great card :) And I see the red post box and the telephone box peeking out at the back. Very appropriate!

  4. With that stamp and those papers you couldn't go wrong. :) I love everything about your card. The stamp screams England, and so do the papers. (Wishing I could get my hands on those papers, myself.) I also love the layout, and your creative props in the picture.
