snail mail...

I made this card to play over at SCS...the FS151 is Jacksonbelle's own Stephanie!!!!

Are you curious as to what card I picked as my inspiration?

I took her oh-so-gorgeous Core'dinations Whitewash Bloom card and made it clean, crisp and fun:) I used her overall design but changed up the paper and embellies. I used Basic Grey Sugar Rush and a sweet Basic Grey Woolie:) I kept the sentiment {my little shoebox stickers} in the same location and opt'd for a ZVA bling {for the snail trail...LOL} instead of Stephanie's debossed vines. I stitched the Sugar Rush panel with white thread to coordinate with the stitching on the woolie.

Two totally different styles...LOL...gorgeous vs. cute...sorry Stephanie, I'm a smidge rusty...trying to jump back into the SCS swing of things:)

Well, today is the almost the end of the month...in my Finance/Accounting world that means month/year end chaos...whew....

Remember to come on back tomorrow...it is my day over on the 365 Cards blog:)
