This card is winging its way to a friend in America. It's her birthday, and she's fascinated with anything and everything to do with this strange land we call Australia :-) So I made her a card with the iconic harbour bridge - stamped on kraft paper - and assorted Sydney postage marks. As much as I love my embellishments, I had to keep them to a minimum this time - not only do they add to the weight of a card, they just don't travel well in the mail. So, in the interest of keeping it simple, I applied glitter to a yellow silk flower for a pop of colour, and added a simple ribbon bow. Done!
