Whiff of Joy Design Call Challenge!!

Katharina made up another beautiful sketch for anyone to use to try out for a guest spot on her design team:) All you have to do is make a card using her sketch and post it by the 30th for a chance at working with her and her new adorable line of stamps!! (Also you have a chance to win her new set if you think of a boy/girl name that her and Elisabeth like!!)
On with the card... I just got my new Sugar Nellie stamps by Elisabeth Bell yesterday and just had to ink them up last night when my kiddies were all tucked in :) I also got my sewing machine threaded and had a go at it!! I wanted to use the postbox image so to get it to look right for me I just flipped the sketch so that the image mat was on the left instead of the right.
I put the mailbox on the inside as the image was a little big for the sketch!! But I really like how it came out!! (Sorry about the water reflection in the picture)!

Paper: K & Co.
Ink: Archival's Jet Black, distressed inks
Accessories: Sentiment circle ~ cuttlebug, ribbon ~ Micheals ~ Pearl brad

Thanks for stopping by I will probably be back with another card as Katharina has 2 more sketches out!! One for Papertake Weekly and one for A Spoonful OF Sugar!! Have a great day:)
