Snail Mail

Good morning to all my friends and  followers today is the launch of our weekly challenge over at Crafty Ribbons Challenge The theme for this weeks challenge is add Flowers and  Pearls and  you must also add ribbon or lace to your project to enter.So many forget and  cannot be considered.
There is always a very generous prize from the Crafty Ribbons Store for the winner. this week its Birthday Sentiment Ribbons
For my Design Team card I'm using a Saturated Canary digital stamp Snail Mail . When it was announced back in the summer they were closing the digital stamp shop I bought a few that I liked and this is one of them. Sadly there are loads I didn't get but maybe one day they will reopen.
