So I took the decision LATE last night to join in this challenge even though I have had an extremely busy weekend and was working today so could not craft! I have developed my characters properly yet, they just have names and were penpals that many years ago lost touch and they have once again found each other... The back of the postcard needs some work, but the stamp I have used to create the card is from the stamp set winter post... What a great way to get some use of a Christmasy set!

Needless to say after my tea was finished I got inky
The first country in this challenge was Austria and I decided to create a postcard using the Austrian flag as the background of my card and decoupaged a hand drawn and watercolored Edelweiss...
I used marina mist water colour pen and an aqua brush to create the flower petals and I also used daffodil delight for the centre of the card with some screwed up tissue paper in the centre!
I hope you like the postcard and thanks for looking! Happy Crafting...
