A commissioned card

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are enjoying summer and all it's beauty.

Here is a quick card I made for a lady who lives in our complex. She wanted it for a friend who was moving to another country.

The house stamp is from Hero Arts and I have used my  Archival metallic blue ink pad to stamp it.

The clouds are stickers that came from lovely Terry - thank you, Terry for all that delightful stuff you sent me.

The ribbon roses are from my stash and so are the gems and the butterfly.

The strip at the bottom is actually a wall paper sample. I did a bit of touching up on the stamped image with my Sakura pens.

I wanted to write something more meaningful but that is all that the label would hold...

The lady did like the card and I sold it for USD 3.5.

Happy crafting with lots of hugs,

Monica
