"You've got mail" card

Good morning! (I know it's not morning anymore, but it sounds better when I start that way.) I made two cards yesterday and wanted to share one of them. I got this idea a long time ago. Sometimes I act on idea right away, other times I wait for the right moment...

And this paper by Basic Grey, was just what I needed to finally act on idea, even though I used only a tiny little piece of it. This paper reminded me of the border on Russian mail envelopes. I remember how exciting it always was to spot one of those between newspapers! 

Here is a few close ups of the card:

 Update: I have received a number of emails regarding this card. I was asked to do a tutorial, and almost a year later I posted it HERE  on my blog. Or visit blog post for February 17, 2014. Thank you!

Speaking of mail, I need to check my in-box. That's how we communicate with my daughter lately, since she is stayed in SC with my sister in law. I miss her terribly. It just doesn't feel right, when one of my kids isn't home... Miss you sweetie!

Hope it's not going to rain all day today, because I need to fix my garden asap. Got to go now, but I hope to be back very soon with more in the Scrapbooking on Budget.

By the way, the giveaway is still open till 26th, if you are interested, visit previous post :)

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!
