Holiday Postcards

On our recent vacation we went to North Yorkshire in England and I loved it. The landscape with its moors and little villages is so beautiful. Naturally I took a lot of photos and now the question to ask is: what to do with them. Photoalbums is a bit boring, scrapbooking is not really my thing ... maybe making some postcards?
These are the first two photos I used

I cropped the images and combined them digitally with some amazing graphics from Karen, the Graphics Fairy (pumpkin, little witches hats) and Free Image Tuesday Creations (child). I printed the digital image on some white watercolour paper (roughly postcard size) and layered it on digital paper from the Background Fairy
To finish the postcard I used some Elzybells spider stamps and printed a sentiment.
Thank you, Karen for your wonderful graphics. Petra.
