DCM - Postcard

This week's Friday dare was to make a postcard & we have to send it. Well obviously with the postal strike mine won't be going anywhere but from 15th, I will be on holiday from work, so this might just wing itself to the office. It was a fabulous challenge & I am quite shocked I managed to get a photo this late in the day. I left work half an hour late, having got tied up trying to help a colleague sort something out. By the time I had got myself to Tesco & back it was almost 6pm. My card is below, front & back shots. The shape I got from drawing around a postcard my sister sent me a few weeks ago from France. The paper I used is DCWV, Once Upon a Time, stuck to thin card to make it a bit sturdier. All the stamps are from my two travel sets including the fab "postcard" one on the back. Let yourself go, are rub ons put onto another square of the paper & taped on securely, this has after all got to go through RM!!! I don't envy it!

I'm not entirely happy with this. I wanted 3D elements & lets face it, even in an envelope, the poor thing wouldn't stand a chance with out postmen!
