January Choices With the Card Chain Challenge Group

 Choices, Choices, Choices.

Before I show you my card, I wanted you to see the choices I had to choose from.  I love these challenges - always some snail mail for me at least once a month - pretty snail mail too!


Now for my card for my partner Helen G. in Ohio, USA!

I had a lot of fun with this card.  I first stamped the Julie Nutting image, die-cut with my slimline dies and colored the image in.  I like to know the surface I'm working with so that's why I usually die-cut my images before I color them.  I decided to stamp over the panel with some script and had found a bubble stencil that I knew I had to use.  I really like the effect of both stamping and stenciling.  

I had to stencil the envelope too!  LOL

what a great card Arlene. It's lovely. I have a Julie Nutting girl and they are prefect for tall/slimline cards
