happy mail!

Hello everyone!
This is Kathrin here today sharing a new creation with you.

For this post I have decorated an envelope.
We all love making cards, but envies are kind of plain, at least with my crafting. So I turned the envelope into my card this time.

I used one of the newest images by Whiff Of Joy here, it's called "Happy Mail". 
Here in Germany the mailboxes are yellow and since I used a german text I wanted it to look right. And this is why I went with a yellow and blue combo for my "card". I also think it's a great and fresh color combo for summer - like sunshine and the sea. ;)

I added a charm and some lace as decoration and also a few die cuts to complete my project. 
I wanted it to stay kind of flat - maybe I can get the german post to mail it if I write the address on the back of the envelope. And then any bigger decorations would get ripped off during transport.

These are the Copics I used:

Skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E0000
Cheaks: R20, R22
Mailbox: Y19, Y15, Y13, Y11
C7, C5, C2, C0
Hair: E49, E44, E41
Shoes, Parcel and letter: E43, E42, E41
Dress: B05, B01, B000
Background: BG0000
Shadows on the ground: C5, C2

That's it for today - enjoy a sunny summer day!
