A tall card

Finally the light is acceptable to take a photo of my entry for Caardvarks` "A Tall Order" challenge! Love this challenge, you have til Friday to enter, be sure to check the fabulous submissions! I needed a card for a family that moved into a new house, so I "built" one:

I didn`t have a "sweet" stamp and had to include some handwriting... that`s always tricky, but I managed it, using a tag - in case I messed it up I just would have taken a new tag :)
Everything I used is Papertrey Ink, except for the Hero Arts clouds stamp, the Melissa Frances keyhole, the American Crafts patterned paper and the Creative Imaginations patterned paper.

Hope to be able to make another "tall" card!

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hugs,
Vanessa
