Postcard Challenge week 2 - Spain

Yay!! week 2 of Darcy's Postcard challenge has arrived!
The country for this week is Spain. I chose Madrid as this is the fashion capital of Spain and it fits so well with my story, I decorated my postcard with Tim Holtz sewing room die and Tag and bookplates. I added some thread, a wooden button, pearls, lace and brads and glossy accents crackle. I also printed an old map from google images and used this for the background. 




And on the back of the card I made a template on the PC added the word postcard in Spanish ( I hope it's right :0/ ) I also added an old Spanish stamp I found in my stash.



The postcard reads:

Dear Captain Spencer Everett,
Thank goodness you found my purse.You see the item inside no longer mine and I need to return it A.S.A.P. We need to meet but it seems we are both regular travellers. I am a fashion designer and am often overseas, as you'll see from the card i am in Madrid at the moment.If you you would please let me know when you are next in London I will arrange to pick up the purse.
Yours Gratefully,
Penny.

I hope you are enjoying the story so far?
I am really enjoying the challenge and already looking forward to Monday to find out the next Country.
Also taking part in the challenge are my lovely close friends:


Thanks for all of your lovely comments and welcome to all of my new followers.
Until next time,

Nicki.XXX
