Today's card is a combination of inspirations. First I loved what Karen and Christina did yesterday with Karen's "Carbon Copy" challenge (CR84FN colors and WPlus9 Woodgrain Silhouettes and Additions), so I was inspired to fussy cut out the flowers. But when I saw Ashley's card, I thought, why not make it postal, as I was trying to find a way to incorporate the circle into the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. And since I went postal, in my little mind, it made sense to make an envelope for the Young Crafts Unite challenge. To add a little extra to the woodgrain in my card I inked up the Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder with gathered twig distress ink, which is another great example of the challenge I'm the guest blogger on over at Yvonne's Do More With Less. If you haven't played along, there's still another week to ink up, I'd love to see what you create.
