Color Palette Option


Sketch Option


Theme Options: Cacti / Mythical Creatures / Friendship


Product/Technique Options: Hemptique Cord / Lace / Spray Inking

Who Sent What To Whom

And that brings us full circle.

Thank you, everyone, for sharing your artistic talent and doing your part for global relations! We've now exchanged over 2,357 cards by participants from 38 of the 50 United States and 30 countries!
