English Cottage

Challenge 16 - First Sketch of 2009


This is an old stamp that I just got from JDA and is from Penny Black 1997.  

I decided to make a card for Miyuki's mother because her mother likes to do flower pressing and she owned a small garden in Japan.

Now she is in Singapore with Miyuki now and I made this card for her base on this stamp...an English Cottage which is also her favourite.

I passed the card to Miyuki yesterday and this morning she told me that her mother was so surprise with card and she loved it very much.  I'm so happy to hear that she liked the card.


Pattern paper that I used were from BasicGrey, Bittersweet's Rocky Road. This is one of my favorite now and it matched so well with the English Cottage and the Green cardstock.  I decided to go to Made with Love one more round to collect all the series.
