Please Mr. Postman

I made this card for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge #3. The challenge is to use one of these song titles for Inspiration.
The choices are.....
A Whiter Shade of Pale - Procol Harum
Time of the Season - Zombies
Please Mr. Postman - Marvelettes

I have this great Postbox stamp from Sugar Nellie that I had not inked yet, so this was the perfect reason.

I also decided to combine this challenge with the Copic Colour Challenge to use the colors
R85 - Rose Red
BG05 - Holiday Blue and
Y15 - Cadmium Yellow

I have had such a great day stamping for fun rather than prepping for a class or a deadline. I hope you have enjoyed my cards and are inspired to join in on the fun. Don't forget to check out this post for news about a great stamp giveaway from Repeat Impressions stamps.

Hello Sandy.
I just love this image! She is so sweet. Gorgrous colouring and its great that you found the CCC to give you inspiration for these colours. Love your flowers at the top. I think you'd get away with having a season card too as it shouts summer at you too!

Thank you for joining us for Challenge 3 this week at "Stampin' for the Weekend". We hope you had fun making your card (And inking up your new stamp). Hope to see you for many more challenges!
