A Letter Full of Love

When I saw The Alley Way Stamps Be Inspired Challenge, I instantly was reminded of a card that saw on Pinterest.  All the balls and fans look a lot like the hearts bursting out of the card.  I've been longing to CASE that fun card for weeks, and this was a great excuse to take the time to do it.

I used patterned paper from My Mind's Eye and the text from The Alley Way Stamps.  It's one of their freebies, I just cropped off the word "snail".  I drew the heart by hand matching it to the fun font on the envelope.  Originally, I used the same fun summery colors in the be inspired photo, but then decided that the hearts would look better with patterned paper.  I found some distressed plaid paper in my stash that had lots of the same bright colors in it and then matched the paper to the others.  Then my grey envelope clashed so I switched it with a subtle tan.  I like that much better.

This card just makes me smile.  It's so happy and is perfect for a OWH card.
