The challenge at Penny Black and More for the month of May is London celebrations (Jubilee and Olympics). When I first saw the challenge I was racking my brain as to how I would make this card. I had an idea but did not think I could pull it off as I did not have the right stamps. This is where my good friend Tina stepped in and lent me the Bus and Big Ben stamps.
I wanted the scene to show the animals going on their way to the London celebrations. I coloured the flowers and snail shell, red, white and blue so they would work in with the scene. I added the cute hedgie with his balloon dropping in on the scene too. Tina came to my rescue, yet again, with the a length of British flag ribbon. I cut the ribbon into tiny flag shapes and glued them to a piece of twine. I stamped "have a great day" on the front of the Bus and the scene was finished. I was really pleased with the end result.
