Top Tip Tuesday - Open Challenge

Welcome to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge again!  It seems like ages since I've had a DT posting for TTTC, however we now have new DT members and a new rota so I'll be posting projects every other week.  This week we have an open challenge, you make make whatever appeals to you, couldn't be easier!

I've made a card with a Phindy's Place image called Summer Post Office, you can also buy a Phindyville Post Offic, isn't this a fun idea.  I hope Phindy's going to build us a whole town:).  I coloured with Copics and edged with Distress Inks.  The script DP is Basic Grey and the corrugated card is recycled card bought from Stamp Attic, which is also where the twine came from.  The sentiment is Joanna Sheen.  I feel really silly, I based my card on a sketch, where two squares were offset and there was an embellie on a ribbon at the base of the card, but I cannot now find the sketch to link my card to!  I really am losing my marbles lol...  Hooray!  I found it, it is at Sweet Stop Sketches.

This card is for the following challenges:
Stamp Something - digi day
Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
Craft Your Days Away - anything goes
Sweet Stop Challenge - sketch
