So call me maybe


I created this card for one of my nieces who is now a full-blown teenager :(.  Time flies.  Eventhough she lives just 5 houses down from us I hardly see her anymore because she has a very busy highschool life.  I am linking this to Mojo Monday sketch challenge #256 and also to The Cameo Spotlight Challenge #2 (my second link to their numbers challenge!). 

This card is a little under 6 x 6 and is again inspired by one of my doily collection purchased through the Silhouette Store, and is by Jamie Koay.  The base of the card is again created by 2 shadows of the doily welded together.  The oval and the circle cuts were shapes created and sized from the Silhouette Studio so I can layer on top of the doily cut.  I used a digi image by Polly Craft called Call me Chester and sized it to fit inside an oval cut then colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiments in the front next to the image and inside the card are done using the Times New Roman font.

 
 
"hello" with two phone receivers is actually a plastic
 button purchased from Michaels
 
 
Here's a peek at the inside of the card.
 


The card with the envelope.  The envelope is by Snapdragon Snippets, purchased through Silhouette Store. 

Thanks for looking!
