Happy Mail...4 in 1

I knew as soon as I saw this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which is to make a card to send to a Post Pal child to brighten their day, that I had to join in. I have sent a couple of cards to children through the Post Pals scheme before...but not for a while. I used this week's Sketch Saturday sketch, as the basis of my card, and have also managed to combine a couple of themes from other challenges too: the 'Touchy Feely' theme of A Spoon Full of Sugar with the textured Cuttlebug embossing; and have used several brads (round and a dragonfly) for the Secret Crafter Challenge. The image is a Sugar Nellie stamp ('Bunny with Flowers' by Rachelle Anne Miller), the stripey paper is by K&Co (from the Amy Butler pad), the flowers are all from Poppicrafts, the sentiment is from the Clare Curd Signature Range set of sentiments by Papermania, the dragonfly brad is by Dovecraft, and I used the 'Swiss Dots' and 'Perfect Paisley' embossing folders on the plain card.
