Simplicity - Patriotic Cards

Susan really got me here with her OLW challenge: Patriotic Cards because I don't have any patriotic stamps .... so I tried to think outside the box. Coming from Germany and living in England at the moment I started to think what the differences between these two countries are ... I found one very significant one: while in England it is teatime, in Germany it is 'Kaffee und Kuchen' (coffee and cake) in the afternoon. I created two cards to show the two favourite afternoon pastimes of these two countries (LOL)
England
Germany
All stamps are from Elzybells, stamped with Brilliance ink and coloured with Koh-i-noors. Petra.

How totally clever! Love your thinking behind the challenge and the fact that you did cards for both countries. Both are absolutely delightful, and I love the deckled edges. They make me want to break out my sadly neglected deckle scissors. Hugs!

Both very lovely customs ... clever you Petra to think outside the box.

It would be hard to decide which was my favorite, both are super!
