Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

Our inspiration photo at Nichole's blog Capture the Moment

Whoops! Almost forgot that it is July 25 and time for the PTI challenge of the month. 
I made this card quickly after a trip to Eugene today. Sometimes it helps to think over
the details of what you wish to create while shopping (ha ha) and so here is my late entry.
With a mini Misti stamped the blue and white panels and set the postal die cut on a foam
rectangle before it was attached to the card front.I was inspired by the post marks, blue
background and gold seal.

 PTI Stamps: Doodlie-Do & Songbirds
PTI Dies: Doodlie-Do, Mix & Mat: Postal
Ink: Hero Arts Navy
Misc.: gold embossing powder, foam adhesive tape

More photos from our recent trip to Kenya.
At a Masai village helping build housing from
sticks and mud for a widow.
