Sending Love Your Way

Here's a card I made for a dear friend. We used to write each other letters all the time. Until email came along. And then it was the sporadic letter. And then I convinced her to join facebook. And it seems we forgot what pen and paper was. So now just every once in a great while we will surprise each other with a "real" letter.

I fussy cut the images using some Unity stamps from the Sending My Love set, hand colored them and then popped them with foam.

I used twine (in her fave color purple) for the movement swirl of the letter.

I'm entering this in Wee Memories Challenge #62 which calls for a Clean and Simple project.
and
In All Things Unity Challenge #35 which is to use twine or ribbon (and only Unity stamps).
