Snail Mail is Happy Mail.....

Hello everyone: Like the title says, "Snail Mail is Happy Mail", there is nothing sweeter than opening your mailbox and finding a handmade card from your friends and family, among the dreaded bills and junk mail.
So here is a card I created celebrating our beloved "Snail Mail" and I will link it to a few challenges at the end of this post.

This ohh!! so adorable image is from a Penny Black set called.....Critter Party. I stamped it onto a panel of watercolor paper and then, made a mask of it to sponge the grass and sky. The little envelope is from a small set from Technique Tuesday I got as a gift, I colored these images with watercolors and added some detail and shadows with Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Natural Beauties
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from two Power Poppy sets, Everything's Even Rosier and Azaleas

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

A Inky Mess Challenge #14 "Anything Goes" Just for fun.
Aurora Wings Challenge #58 "Clean and Simple"
Penny Black and More October Challenge "Close to Nature"

AAA Cards Game #100 "Sketch"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Oh Maria, this is one of my favourite ways to stamp - to sponge then stamp on it. The colouring on your adorable image is gorgeous and the image itself made me smile.
