Happy Mail - Art by Mi Ran

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to host the Art by Mi Ran blog post!  This time around our theme for the month is Back to school.  I decided for my make to use an image that you would not necessarily think of using but once you hear the story behind the choice you will agree I think.

Remember when you applied to a special program and how much you wanted to be in it?!?  And don't know about you but that and my report cards coming in would have me checking up the mail everyday until it finally arrived!  So that's why for my card I used the awesome Happy Mail
Digital Digi Stamps - Happy Mail, Coloring Page, Coloring for Children,  Instant Download Digi Stamp, Line Art for Card

So here's what I have made with her :)  I decided to go with a purple and yellow color combination.  I really hate how the purple often ends up looking bluish...

The paper that I used for this is from Momenta Card stock.   I used my Label 8, my gold ivy and large circle dies all from Spellbinder and my French Lily corner die from Joy craft.  I added some lace and some bling from my stash.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics.  The great sentiment is from Create with TLC

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Crafty sentiments - Anything goes
  2. Pinspirational challenges - Anything goes
  3. Come and get it chalenge - back to school - not the typical one I know... but read the reasoning for it :)
  4. We do doo badoo - Shabby Chic - that's how shabby chic I can get....

I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!  I'll be back later with another post so please don't go anywhere!
