Happy Mailing - Bells and Whistles

Happy Monday everyone! Since it is 1 AM here I'm going to keep this short and sweet!

Today is the Greeting Challenge at The Outlawz and the theme is Pearls and Lace.  My card is created  using the  adorable Bells and Whistles, Happy Mailing image by Elisabeth Bell!   I had the great pleasure of meeting Tab,  owner of 7 Kids College Fund,  at her store in Phoenix a few months back!  Oh my gosh, talking about drooling!   She had all the Bell's and Whistles images and I wanted them ALL!  Good thing hubby was with me to keep my sanity in place!   I love "Happy Mailing" for it can be used for so many different occasions; birthdays, Easter, Thinking of you, really just about anything! I love the sizes of them too for they are just below 3 inches and perfect for any size card!





Paper: Memory Box: Viola which is the first paper pad in a long time to come out with pretty purples!
Die cuts: Memory Box  Tilth Floral and I purchased it at my Local Scrpabooking Store, Photo Scraps, Eldersburg, MD.  Rusty @ Oozak.com will soon be getting Memory Box dies in stock!! Yah! This is the Tilth Floral.

Four cuts: 2 purple and 2 green. I stacked the green on top of the purple and was really pleased with the look! Pearls were added to each corner. 

My lace and ribbon are from my stash, but I do know I purchased it on Ebay! The happy Birthday sentiment is a Basic Gray Rub On in white. I love Rub-ons! Flower Soft applied to the flowers and and grass. Sky done was created sponging Summer Sky, Memento Ink.. I sewed around the edges with my sewing machine. Copics for coloring.: Outfit V95, V93, V91, skin E11, E00, E000, pants: E43, E42, E41, Mailbox: C05, C03, C01, C00 and  colorless blender.

Adorable card! I have the opposite problem I am always pinching my pennies when it comes to purchasing craft supplies and when I take the hubby he wants to buy me everything and its usually items I never seen or heard of before.
