#ChezPeachy #GorgeousGifts @SkyofBlueCards #SkyofBlueCards “She Hero” Art Print Highly Recommended by #WhomYouKnow #SheHero

Words matter!
It's not who you know, it's WHOM YOU KNOW and today the sun is shining and the sky is blue in Manhattan and thus we inaugurate our coverage of Sky of Blue Cards by Karla Ebrahimi, whom we now know.  We limit our Instagram posts tremendously, and one of the current 223 we are showing right now has been up since July 12, 2016 and it says this exact same sentiment!  Karla and Peachy are drinking the same philosophical kool-aid years before they knew each other.  She needed a Hero, so she became one is central to our philosophy of excellence and leadership, and fulfilling one's full potential regardless of your sex. The “She Hero” art print is from Sky of Blue Cards’ “Wise Words” collection. The minimalist design focuses attention on the powerful words and is designed with a hand-lettered font called “Fink” and is letterpress printed in black ink on 100% cotton paper. It measures 8 in. x 10 in. and is sold unframed.
Stay tuned for more excellence to come from this stellar couture stationary brand we have discovered through the wonders of Twitter.

Karla Ebrahimi is the founder of Sky of Blue Cards. Karla began her graphic design career creating greeting cards and specialty products for Hallmark Cards in Kansas City. She later moved to San Francisco where she worked as a designer for a variety of companies in the software industry. Feeling the need to go out on her own, Karla began freelancing with a small list of clients that grew quickly over the years. She and her husband started their family and relocated just south of San Francisco in Silicon Valley, where they remain today. 

Karla’s favorite projects have always been designing announcements and invitations for her clientèle, friends, and family. Creating Sky of Blue Cards and offering her designs to the retail market was a natural move toward the center of what she loves — fine stationery; and thus, Sky of Blue Cards was born. 

Karla resides in Menlo Park, California with her husband Drew, their two teenagers Nathalie and Griffin, and their two dogs, Buckley and Marley.
