Just a note to say hi

Stamps: Scripty Sayings (PS); Lots of Dots (SSS)
Ink: Angel Pink, Rose Bud, Bamboo Leaves, Pear Tart (Memento)
Other: Grosgrain plate (MFT); Tag-along die (Clearly Besotted)
I needed to send a note to someone I haven't seen for ages, & despite all the hours I spend making cards, had nothing in my stash that seemed appropriate.
 
I did briefly consider buying a miniature envelope die (don't you find you get carried away with dies & forget that you have hands & scissors?) but having successfully cut one freehand, I'm glad I didn't bother.  Although it doesn't show in the photo, the dark pink strip has been embossed to look like grosgrain & that, combined with the cut-out were a direct case from Ardyth's card here.
 
I added the confetti because things just looked a little too stark without it.

  2. A mini envelope die is on my wish list but maybe I should try to make one by hand first... Yours looks perfect! Love the two-sided paper and the confetti!
