FTL180 You've Got Mail!

Good morning crafty people. I wanted to do something fun and springy for this challenge outside of the flower realm and grabbed this cute stamp set with mailboxes, colored them various hues of pink and paper pieced my envelopes. The grass is die-cut onto textured card stock and I sponged the edges, added my ribbon and sentiment banner, then popped it all up on foam dots for dimension. I used glue dots on the envelopes for dimension as well.

Thank you for stopping by to visit us today!
