Mail It Monday-True Love

Welcome to my first Design Team post for a new card challenge with Shawnna @ Small Talk Mama called

Mail It Monday!!!

I'm so excited to be part of the Design Team for this new card challenge blog launch!
This week's challenge is our first Mail It Monday sketch #1. I hope you participate and take part in the new challenge blog and what the heart is behind it. To send love, thanks, warm thoughts, best wishes or congrats to those you love and to those who need a little encouragement, thanks, etc.

Now onto the challenge...This is the card I made using the inspiration from sketch #1
