Letters Home

My goodness, another day of tussles, but I did manage to get this card made and if I keep this pretty short I will even get it posted before midnight.
This is the free digi for the challenge at I Did It Creations Challenge Blog.  Robyn, Jeanette, and all their design team and stamp designers are always very generous with a free stamp each week and you get extra points if you win for using the freebie. You'd be hard pressed to find a nicer bunch of gals than that. You may just barely have time tomorrow to still get in on the challenge.
When I downloaded this stamp and printed her, she said,"Beverly, get out that Mirabelle Paper Pack." So, I went right to my stash and sure enough these were the perfect papers. I printed her again on the flower paper and pieced her dress on, then colored the rest with my Copic markers. I colored the brads with one of my Bic MarkIt pens to match, and finished it off with the script stamp and the stamp for the sentiment. I kept trying to fit some lace or ribbon on here, but I decided I like it just like it is.
