Just Writing to Say I Love You....

This is one of those cards that just evolved. I think this one would be more Shabby Chic in style so I will enter it into Sugar Creek Hollow for their Mother's Day Challenge.  I began with Nana Vic's Digital image "Letter Writing".....I have many of her images but have not used many in a card.  I decided to use this when I saw that she is the sponsor this week of SCH and many of the DT made lovely cards with her images. After printing the image, I colored it with Copics, added some Distress Ink and cut with a circle die. I placed this on a distressed paper doily, a pattern paper mat and then on to the embossed card base. I sponged all the layers with Distress Inks as I assembled the card. Finished with a ribbon and bow and stuck in a "toothpick" pencil. (I learned how to make the pencil at my last stamp club meeting.Even colored in an eraser.)  I stamped the sentiments with Distress ink.
