Sending Happy Mail

Todays card features this little fur ball of mischief, Newton.

I've used the sketch from Inky Paws and once again I've used artistic license by using the image, sentiment and the clouds in place of the squares, I've also rotated it.  Newton has been coloured with alcohol markers and a little bit of wink of stella has been added to the mail box.  The clouds are MB and have had a tiny amount of ink added for definition.  The sentiment is from the same set and just white heat embossed onto black cardstock and cut into a fishtail tag.  I hand stitched the swirls and added a little Sizzix envelope complete with a heart brad in place of the bow on the sketch.
