Bridge Club

     For many years, I played regularly in a pinochle group and my daughter's MIL plays in a Bridge Club.  I'm giving her a couple dozen greeting cards because she's one of the people I know who faithfully still sends real cards as opposed to email or text greetings.  I'll make sure this card is in the collection I give to her.  I know she'll love it.

I started with the color palette at House of Cards.

     This is my first card using new goodies from the Holiday season!  I did the coloring on this House Mouse stamp with my newest set of polychromos pencils, then cut it with a rectangle die from QuicKutz.  The "Hello" sentiment was done with a Poppy Stamps die (also new as a Christmas gift but for DIL, not me.)  I matted the image with another simple die cut (also QuicKutz.)

     I used a pink CS background, wrapped with black, grosgrain, ribbon (another new goodie) and cut the sentiment from black CS.  Simple design but easily mailed.
