Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Photo Inspiration

This fortnight at the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge, we have a photo to inspire you:


We are sponsored for this challenge by:



I took inspiration from the colours...choosing a House Mouse image called 'Stamp, Stamp, Stamp' that has been waiting for soooo long to be used...I thought it kind of looked like he was sending a postcard home from his holidays...although it's an envelope he's sticking the stamps on to. The papers are from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad by We R Memory Keepers, the brads are BasicGrey and the sentiment is from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp. Everything used on this card is at least a year old!


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
