I had a super fun time making this cute card and would you believe that it did not take me much time at all to make it?! I used the Colorblock Alphabet to stamp the background image, using Poppy ink. The pencils and focal point are from the stamp set. A few Black Gems were added for visual appeal.

Please head on over to Melinda's Blog to check out her awesome artwork creation!

We appreciate you stopping by our Blog Hop! Have a wonderful month!
