Pretty, Happy Mail :)

Coffee of the Day - Salted Caramel Pecan

Today starts a new challenge over at Pile it On - Floral Fantasy! let's see you pile on the flowers! we are sponsored by Crafty City. the winner of our challenge will receive a voucher valid for 15% off of their total purchase. :) also please be sure to stop by the Pile it On blog to see all of the amazing projects made by my fellow teamies. they are so very talented and would appreciate your comments. :)

about a month ago I was super-dee-duper blessed to win one of the brand new stamps over at the Stamping Bella blog. This beauty, 'Uptown Girl Maybelline Loves Mail', arrived in MY mailbox just a few days ago. I knew she would be perfect for this floral challenge! isn't she fab?!?!? she also comes with a sentiment.

of course my new fave Basic Grey Fresh Cut paper paired gorgeously with her. I added a punched butterfly with pearls, some SU! seam ribbon, a pretty pink Prima, and buttons from my stash. the 'happy' letters are also part of the Basic Grey collection.  both regular and distress stickles, a black Viva Decor pearl pen, and black spica glitter pen were used to accent the main image. I really love the way the watercolor pops so well on this image! oh yes, the banner is a SU! die.
