I am on a bit of a tear with sketches - 
I forgot how much I get done when I am given a challenge or sketch!

Today I popped by The Paper Players & loved their challenge
ans instantly knew what I wanted to work with -

I recently ordered Lawn Fawn Love Letters & the Happy Mail die,
these were the perfect sets for this challenge.

Here is my card
I cut a square die and lawn fawn grass.
I distress inked the background clouds.

The mail comes out of the mailbox and opens.

here it is with out the mail.

I took the above photos in the sun, 
these were taken without direct light.
I have been try different lighting to get better pictures.
Bare with me threw this process.

If you have any lighting tips or tricks please feel free to share - 
I would love to here them!

  3. Love, love, love your little mailbox... and adding the special note inside is precious! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  4. Such a cute card, and I love that the little love note comes out...I love interactive cards!!
    As for your photo lighting...I like the bottom photo more, the one above has a bit of a yellow tinge to it...even though natural light is suppose to be the best for photography.

  5. I have that die set too! LOL And I haven't used it yet! I Adore your card - It's so cute with that sweet bird and wonderful job with those clouds! As for the lighting - I'm no expert or anything but direct sunlight makes it look yellowish - the indirect sunlight seems to give it the perfect amount of light - looks clear & crisp - Also - don't be afraid to use a photo editing program to help achieve the best pictures! I take anywhere from 6 - 15 photo's of one project - and then decide which ones I think are best.. then use some photo editing to dwindle it down to 1 or 2 pictures that I will use for posting - Blogging takes a lot of work as does videos - So I appreciate it when people post, because I know how much time can go into it - :)


  6. Your inked sky is a great backdrop for the mailbox. I love that the note opens out to be mail. We used to have a letterbo just like this when I was a girl. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  7. This is such a fun Valentine! I love that mailbox.Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week!
