Feel Better - Meljen's Designs Challenge

Hi ya everyone!
  Ok, so I totally didn't follow the challenge this week at Meljen's Designs Challenge blog with the new images that are ever so sweet:
All of them can be found right HERE at Whimsy Stamps.  I have some of the new images colored up but really wanted to use this mailbox because well I LOVE coloring these and honestly Melissa from Meljen's has so many adorable images that it's fun to go back and find some gorgeous older images - this image called Mailed With Love can be found right HERE!!  This mailbox shouts spring so I thought it perfect for a little note to a friend that isn't feeling so well.  I colored the image in Copics and tried a new swirly pattern in the background just to be different!
I used some super bright colors for this card using a stack from Basic Grey called Romani.  Aren't the papers yummy?  I also used a bit of crinkle ribbon for a bow that I then placed a button and Baker's twine on.
Finally, I added three little red gems!  That's it - quick, simple, bright and cheery!!!
Have a great day and don't forget to check out the challenge this week at Meljen's - make a bookmark - and you won't want to miss this magical release at Whimsy!
