Make it - Mail it challenge

I don't believe it this is my second post today, totally unheard of for me!!  If you would like to see my "Inspired by" card please go to the post below.

The lovely Lisa Spangler has a new challenge on her blog called "Make it- Mail it" as she says "a card is a smile in an envelope" and you don't need a reason like birthdays to send cards, send them all the time! 

Well I am not going to say who this card is for just in case she reads this post, but I have been meaning to send her a card for ages.  She is a kind blogging friend who has sent me numerous cards and is always around to leave sweet comments on my blog.  I have been playing around with Shari's layered background technique again and came up with this little card. I hope she likes it!!




Supplies: Hero Arts Stamps: CL383Antique Engraving, CG197Old Letter.CG172 Garden Bouquet.S5507 Envelope Background. Distress inks, Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender, Bundled Sage. White embossing powder.

I always have to remember and double check if I left the first comment on Flickr or on your blog! Old age! I loved this card on Flickr and knew immediately that it was yours, the signature butterfly and the fact that you don't often make cards of a standard shape or size which I love! I love your beautiful central collage Sally!
