Truly Scrumptious #5 A card for a child & Creative Inspirations #4 Seeing Double



I wouldn't have had a hope of trying to rotate this sketch from Truly Scrumptious, as I found it quite a challenge. However I'm quite pleased with the end result. The papers are are Clare Curd's Signature range and as the pieces are 12x12 I think that I will be doing several cards from each piece that I cut into. The map stamp is from Personal Impressions and the little pirate chappy is from Panduro... not a make I'm terribly familiar with. The sentiment is a stamp from Papermania.
The challenge at Creative Inspirations calls for 2 stamped images, so I think this qualifies on that front as I have used three stamps.
My husband has gone to watch Hampshire play cricket, I'm afraid the weather will have to warm up a little before I go and sit for several hours watching a match!
