A Wanderful Card

Makes Some Happy Mail

Embossing with the new Honeycomb folder gives some fun
texture to this card. The Artiste butterfly on page 58 in the 
Artiste booklet gives the card a feel of freedom. A little
artistic note: use your black journaling pen to outline any
white shape for accent and definition.
And as you know how crazy I am for the Happy Mail
stamp set, I made a coordinating envelope to mail this
card in. It doesn't happen to often these days, but
someone will get some happy snail mail soon.
