Hello Friend

I was inspired today by this Moleskine Illustrations. Thank you Audrie for yet another awesome site. 
I love using digis because you can size them to your needs.
         Can you spot the hidden message on the front of the card? The letters were cut two more times using the Papertrey ink white card stock and layered underneath.
For the inside of the card I lightened the digi to a light gray and computer generated a sentiment over it and printed it out.
The dies were stuck to a piece of painters tape to make it easier to line them up and die cut the letters from my image after it was colored.

Stamps: Power Poppy Countryside Bouquet digi and Avery Elle Sentimental (My friend) on the tag
Supplies: Sizzix / Tim Holtz  Alphanumeric 1 inch letter dies, Fun foam, ribbon, Paper Smooches stitched tag die, Misti, 1/4 hole punch, scoreboard, Memento black ink, Stampin Up Wild Wasabi card stock, Papertrey Ink white card stock, Copic Markers Y11, 13, 15, 18, YR02, 04, 07, 09, 16, 24, E23, 27, BG11, 45, YG61, 63, 67, C1, 5, 6, 9, Wink of Stella, Score Tape, Tombo Mono Glue.
