Peace, man...

Here is one of the cards we made at the FunShop I had last night. The hostess, Vickie had a great turnout and some awesome snacks! She even made chocolate fondue :)

Ok, back to the card. I came up with this one thinking that I needed to demo cards that could be easily mailed without extra postage.

Sometimes the postal system really irks me... heaven forbid a rogue brad would make it onto a card, causing a little bump, and the post office wouldn't let it slide because they needed that extra $0.20!! Sorry... soapbox moment :)

Stamps: Peace, Go Abroad
Paper: Ivory UltraSmooth & Navy cardstocks, kraft packing paper
Ink: Burnt Umber & Starry Night Palettes
Other: Stardust clear gel pen, 3/4" & 1" circle punches, brown Prismacolor pencil

The ladies were cracking me up last night... "this must be a Price Chopper sack"... no really... it isn't... seriously.

I just love the kraft & blue together, and the glitter pen really adds a lovely subtle shimmer.

What do you think?

Very pretty, Barb. I like the rough craft part, not something you see often with a holiday card.
