New Job in London

I thought this might make a nice card to wish someone good luck in a new job - especially if they're an MP ! (I don't know any MPs though.)

My ideas came together here from various sources - the large die cut sentiment from my Docrafts Goody Bag, some challenge themes 'time' and 'maps', and my newly purchased Xcut London die set.

I cut Big Ben out from lined kraft card, to give the effect of office stationary and pinstriped suits. (Well, that was the plan!) I googled a map of central London and printed it out.

I'd like to enter this for:

  8. Love this London themed card! What a great idea to use a London map as background, and the stripes of the kraft paper add that "little, something extra".
