In this card I took some used office sheet for the basis cs and a piece of a package of something I bought long time ago for the matting of the image - that's my recycling.
The map pp is an old London map from the graphics fairy, and I distressed the edges with baby wipe and then crumpled it. after that I inked it with distress ink.
The bashful blue pp are BG Lilikate, also distressed with ink on the edges, and the image is from digital delights, that I stamped twice and then cut the mouse and colored it with water color pencils and addhered it on the second stamp with some dimensionals. the sentiment is a rub-on and the ribbon is from my stash, and I frayed the edges deliberately to go along with the distressed look of the card (No, Pam, I'm not posting this card to the "I'm a frayed knot" challenge, though I did got the idea from this challenge over 365 cards - last year - thanks, Pam, for the inspiration)
The inspirtaion for the theme was from cinema saturday - those tallented women brought "Dear Frankie" as an inspiration. I used colors from the photo they put on the challenge. As for the theme of writing letters (the kid in the movie writes letters to "his dad", which is actually his mom) I used a dp with an image of postcards beneath the image and the image itself (envelope Pippin).
And no lace or flowers....
and I'm entering this card to the following challenges:
