Cards for Kids

It was beautiful weather in London yesterday and I had wanted to take some pictures of the amazing period decoration on the buildings along Piccadilly for some time. So being a Saturday and with such fine weather it seemed like a perfect opportunity. Here are some of the photos: I’m looking for inspiration for a papercraft project I'm in the middle of…
