Another one for Aunt Cilla

I was very lucky to win last month's challenge at Penny Black Saturday and with my voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch I chose this fab Whipper Snapper image, a Penny Black pot of flowers and some lovely stripey DP.  So I've used them all this evening!

This one is from me to my Aunt in Canada, reckon it will give her a giggle.  I've coloured my image with watercolour pencils, added clear gloss to his nose and added some gold stars.  I die cut my 80 from the tiniest snippet of gold sparkly card - Greg laughs at some of the little snippets I save but I get very precious and mean with stuff that I love!

So because I liked that sketch, I thought I'd just use a version of it again!
I coloured my Penny Black flowers loosely with watercolours - I've used mauve and rose here, but they're both a bit samey looking in this pic.


  1. Oh man, oh man, I love both these cards! That striped paper is so pretty. There's just something so classy about pinstripes, isn't there? Your images are just fab, too. I especially love those luscious flowers. Wish I could grow a bouquet like that in my garden.

  2. Two lovely cards, Lynne! Isn't it interesting how one sketch can inspire such different cards? My favourite is the first, what a sweet elephant and fun sentiment!
