April Color Challenge!

Hi everyone! If you are here for the lily pad cards blog hop please visit THIS post for all the details and to leave your comments.

April already and time for another color challenge at Lily Pad Cards. This month Kathy is inspiring us by choosing a happy and bright color combination:

And here is what I have created using my new “You’ve got mail” stamp set by Lawn Fawn

My card is simple and very easy to make. I used a gorgeous yellow patterned paper as a background on a Kraft card base. I then stamped the mailbox in green patterned paper and added some white details with my white gel pen.

I punched out some hearts, made them coming out of the mailbox and added some glitter.  Here is a closer look:

I stamped the sentiment and I did some “three generation” stamping for the post office stamps.

To finish it off I added that yummy ribbon and some faux stitching around the card edges.

Supplies:
