This card combines requirements for Day 216 of 365 Cards - a spattered background - with the second Viva la Verve sketch of October. I spent the day with my friend Kelly, in her WONDERFUL studio. She's a fiber artist, but pitched in to make spattered backgrounds for "miss you" cards that I'll give to Operation Write Home. She used some thin ink (can't remember what she called it) and some dye she had handy. Kelly also provided the vertical strip of painted paper, and had the alphabet stamps to make the greeting.
