In the Mail

Happy Friday!  I'm glad you are able to stop by and visit.  I was looking at a few different blogs over the past few days, and one of the blogs that I follow, posted that she made her card (for a challenge) to actually mail.  What a great idea!  I make quite a few cards.  But, I don't usually mail them.  I do have them for sale in my Etsy Shop, here, but I don't typically put them in the mail for someone.  Until now.  I started thinking, and my good friend deserves a card, to let her know how much I appreciate her.  
So, for todays blog hop, hosted by Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I made my card to mail.   Tammy F. is the designer of this weeks sketch:

One of the things that I love about Tammy's sketches, is that she gives you room for creative freedom.  And that is what I did.  Here is my card:

Here is a close up of the bottom third of my card:

I used all current products for this card.  The card base is basic gray card stock.  I used the 'held-over' Twitterpated DSP.  I just love this paper.  Its so pretty and very easy to use on a variety of products.
I didn't wrap my ribbon around the card.  Instead, I used the banner as my ribbon length.  I did put on a bow.  I tied a simple bow and attached it the card front.  I added a short row of pearls to the banner, to help girl-y it up!
Won't you join us for this week's sketch challenge?  We'd love to see what you create!  Now, head over to Tammy F.'s blog!
