CCT ~ happy mail: 'bringing you sunshine'

CCT theme this week is 'happy mail'. We would like you to make a card to brighten someone's day and if you can spare it why not send it to one of the many sick children over on Postpals and help brighten their day. For full details and more inspiration from the rest of the DT head on over to CCT .

For my card I have kept it fairly simple and used some bright cheery colours along with another Greeting Farm cutie which had the perfect sentiment for this challenge.

  • Images: 'Hope and Grace' Greeting Farm stamp set (not sure if this is Hope or Grace but they are both equally adorable!)
  • Colouring: Copics with a bit of Sakura stardust pen over bits for added sparkle
  • Papers: 'Sunny Glen' Greeting Farm papers
  • Others: Ek Success border punches - scallop dots and I finally got the fab binding edge one from The Hobby House (the one along the top edge that makes it look like torn from a spiral notebook). Flowers mixture of Prima and home made one with EK retro flower punch. Swirl punch, blossom nestie, and a bling brad to finish.

Have a lovely day.
