Card Recognition

sending love


I've made a simple one layer card (something I'm a bit out of practice at) with this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge layout.  I keep having to pay extra postage for my fat multi-layer cards, so I thought a nice flat one would be good for one of my int'l gal pals.

Materials: Waltzingmouse Stamps Very Vintage Labels 4, Paper Source frame, Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Out sentiment, PTI Postmarked, Tim Holtz Distress inks (antique linen, aged mahogany, weather wood, tumbled glass), Versafine black ink

Hi Erin! Sorry I've been MIA with the comments lately, I'm still struggling. :( I COULD NOT PASS THIS ONE BY, THOUGH!! I love it!!!!! It feels like absolute perfection to me.

Love the whole vintage mail theme on this card! It's just perfect with the sketch and the sentiment you chose!

International pals are great, but I'm still secretly glad that you are back in the States, shipping is so much cheaper! Great card, great colors!

Awesome one layer take on this sketch! I've been getting hit with the extra postage fees way too much lately too! I feel your pain, girl!!! So, it's so great to see some one layer inspiration!!!
