Snail Mail

The stupid chest cold that has been running rampant around here has finally found it's way to me, so if any of this seems incoherent, blame the meds, LOL. I am super tired, but I wanted to post something today, so I am gonna try to make this pretty quick.
I am in LOVE with these super cute snails from the new Slow and Steady set from There She Goes. It is just the CUTEST!! When I saw that today's Ways to Use it challenge was to make an ATC, I kinda grumbled, because I really don't like them. Not that they aren't gorgeous, but it isn't a whole lotta room to work with, and I have next to no use for them. So I decided that I would make the ATC, but then show it as a card too, that way I can still use it. I stamped the snail twice on Gina K. White 120lb paper and then colored it with my Copics. The second shell was cut out and popped up. I then stamped two dragonflies, colored them, and cut them out. I layered the main image with Regal Rose and Pumpkin pie. I then added a larger piece of Chocolate Chip behind it, and added some silver brads down the side. The ribbon tabs were then added, along with my sentiment. All the punches used were from SU, as well as the ribbon and brads.
To add the ATC to a card, I used a Chocolate Chip base, then layered Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose. The DP is from the Sweet Always pack. The scalloped border was cut with my SU punch. Isn't it cute??? Not bad for someone who is hopped up on cold medicine, LOL!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
