USA Postage Stamps: South Carolina
This card was for the US Postage Stamps tracker which was a series commemorating all the states with a unique image related to each state.  The reason i chose SC was that we were traveling there late in the year and i thought it would be cool to do this up as a card and then plant it later in the state as a traditional.  This was a bit of a challenge in getting the colors right and some of the intricate details in the buildings and script letters.  I was pleased with how this turned out but probably should have measured it a little bigger because i knew i was using scalloped edges for the borders so i made the stamp smaller than it needed to be.  But i still thought it turned out fairly well even with some of the small flaws here and there.
