Let the Sunshine In

I ma de this card to mail to a new pen pal using the sketch above from Stamp Ink Paper for Sketch Challenge #58. The challenge ends at 8:00 pm Sunday, July 31, so you still have time to play along!
I decided to flip the sketch horizontally and put the sentiment on the tag. I used Basic Grey Iris Vivienne Patterned Paper- both sides. The card is from that one sheet of patterned paper. The tag was manila and in my stash. I painted it with a combination of water, Shimmerz Vibez Jeni B Bleu and Razzledazzle Berry, Shimmerz Inklingz Pugnacious Purple, Shimmerz Celery Non-toxic paint, and Shimmerz Shimmeringz Goldie Lox- all from Spiegelmom scraps Scrap Shop, None of them are on sale anymore, but Jody has a lot more now! The paints are about a year old. I don't use them that often! The twine is from a Recollections lace and trim collection. The stamp on the tag- Let the Sunshine In, the sun, and the doll are all from Julie Nutting Cling Stamp Sunshine set. I used Spectrum Noir Essentials Professional Colored Pencils to color in the doll and the sun. I adhered the top half of the card and the doll on the typing paper with Scotch permanent tape runner. I used my Xyron X 150 Create a Sticker Maker to adhere my tag. I'm going to write a note on the inside and possibly add a piece of typing paper to the inside first since the inside is just like the pink strip on the front of the card. TFL!

So cute, Amanda. A pen pal! How cool is that. I used to have a pen pal when I was a young girl. It was such fun!
