Best of British!

Good evening bloggers!   Another monday out of the way (I hate mondays at work). This card was one of those unplanned ones that just sort of happen if you know what I mean. I had the Portobella Road papers for christmas and although I love them I wasn't at all sure what to do with them, then while searching for a stamp for another card I came across London Lofty which I brought absolutely ages ago just because it was on sale at 99p then I wondered why on earth I had brought it and its just been pushed to one side and never inked up so I thought I would try the two things together and see what happens, lol and here is the result!
I used Portobella Road papers, distress inks, London Lofty and crown coloured with promarkers, brother sentiment from Cuddly Buddly.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

I think Lofty adds a touch of humour to the card. I have this paper set but am going to use it for scrapping.


What a fun card, Jayne! Great bit of humor. So glad you decided to play in the Anything Goes challenge at Lexi's Creations and hope to see you again for the next challenge.
