Snail Mail Should Never Go Out of Style!

I'm not quite sure where to begin on describing this card!  The mat on the front is from Just Because, the mushrooms are from Cindy Lou, the snail is from Sentimentals.  I staples some ribbon onto the mat (with green staples), Embossed the background mat - with two different embossing floders, the yellow on the mushrooms, and the shell on the snail.  The mushrroms are inked and doodled on, as is the shell on the snail.  I made a "snail Box" out of the negative part of the mushroom and that opens so that the little snail can put his card in there!  :o)  I normally don't post pictures of the inside of my cards, but on this one I did.  I had a smaller mushroom that worked perfectly for the inside!  The sentiment on the front is computer generated, lots of doodling, inking, layers, etc... This entire card, yes, entire card, was made from paper from my scrap bin!  YEAH!!! I don;t really know what else to say other than I hope you enjoy looking!  :o)

Thanks for stopping by!
