Two L Llama

This is a one-layer card.  I used a sketch for inspiration.

I printed the llama, coloured it with pencils to look festive. The circle is a die, held in place and sponged over with Distress Inks to make a frame.  The sentiment is stamped through the design.

Coloured pencils
Die used as mask: Spellbinders
Sentiment stamp: Penny Black

Do you remember the poem about the 2L llama?  We learnt it in primary school in spelling class.   Here it is with an hilarious addition:

The one L lama, he's a priest
The two L llama, he's a beast
And I will bet my silk pyjama
There isn't any three L lllama.
                -- Ogden Nash (to which a fire chief replied that occasionally
                his department responded to something like a "three L lllama.")

Oh my gosh. The 3 L llama from the fire chief made me think of a Boston, Massachusetts accent here in the USA. I love it. Never heard that poem.

Your card is so cute. [Bunny]``
