Umm, Spot the difference?

I made this card for my Grandad's Birthday, then on the day I was going to post it, my fab prize arrived from Papermaze, and it included these lovely letter stickers, which were just what I needed to finish it off! So there's my nice easel-photo-tent picture, then a quick snap as I was about to run off to the postbox!

Image: "Deckchair Dreaming" from Lili of the Valley coloured with Promarkers.
Paper: Spotty paper from DCWV Scrapbook kit in a stack, diamond pattern from Dovecraft Masculine pack. Plain blue/green paper  for layering.
Embellishments: Blue/white bakers twine, die-cut sentiment, October Afternoon letter stickers
