Waiting for Mail

     Today I'm sharing another card I used for the Card Chain Challenge wherein the participants exchange friendship cards, sometimes internationally, and this is the one I did most recently.  I used that wonderful mailbox image from Beccy's Place again, and also used the sketch and colors from the CCC challenge.


     The image is colored with my ProMarkers and then cut with a rectangle die (Spellbinders.)  I used a Fiskars punch to round off the corners.  The turquoise frame was cut with a die from Cheery Lynn.

     I found a scrap of ribbon in my stash and added it to the card front, then layered on the frame and image piece.  Finally, again using scraps, I made the sentiment piece and added it.  I kept it as flat as possible with very little embellishment because it was being mailed.

I really love that gorgeous border NanaConnie, the colour is beautiful and the shape is wonderful. It makes me think of those beautiful old wrought iron fences that surround old buildings. I really like your take on the sketch too, the placement of the sentiment is great! Well done.
