Flat Card for Mailing!

Hi, everyone!  It's Kelli and today I have a card to share with you that is extremely flat and perfect for mailing, but it my opinion, isn't boring.  I normally have a hard time making cards flat because I always want to give them tons of dimension, but everyone knows they aren't the best for mailing.  The sentiment is from the new Bold Sentiments III: Birthdays set and the background is done using the Bold Houndstooth Background in VersaMark ink.
I did quite a bit of masking so that the houndstooth was only where I wanted it, but it really didn't take that long.  I used the Echo Park - Dots & Stripes Candy Shoppe 6x6 Pad for the candles to help tie in the sentiment.  I finished it off with some white gel pen stitching to help frame everything.  I used a ruler to get these lines as straight as possible.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!  :)
