I really wish that we could all go back to the days when we used to go to the mail box and see a hand-written note from a friend. Remember back then? Wasn't it so fun to open a letter and find a special note from a friend you hadn't seen in a while? With technology now we can just send an email, text message, or change your Facebook status. And while I am the first to admit that my Blackberry almost never leaves my hands (that's how I read most of your blog updates...from my phone during my lunch break), I think it would be so nice to bring back the hand-written letter.
And so...this card is my attempt at doing just that!
Kelly Marie Alvarez from the Lawn Fawn created a super fun challenge over at Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge. I decided to participate because for one, I just love Kelly's fun stamps at Lawn Fawn; and two, because the color challenge for me was, well, a challenge! Using grays and blues can be difficult because the colors can tend to be drab if not done correctly. So I hope this card is bright, fun, and makes you feel happy!
For this card, I used Just My Type stamps from Lawn Fawn and some Copic markers. Then I decided to do a pleated ribbon for the bottom as a fun border! I added a gorgeous Prima flower, some cute little flower pins and then spritzed by frame with Electric Blue Glimmer Mist. And viola! A super cute card ready to send in the mail.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you get a chance to send a hand-written letter to someone too - it will definitely make them smile!
