Bird House Birthday

Well this is an envelope and a card too.  This can be used as a gift card holder or for a small gift item.  The outside is a 5.5 x 8.5 scored at 2 and 6 then folded.  Scor Tape was used on the edges of the 2.5 fold to create the envelope.  The design paper is Quite Contrary from My Minds Eye.  Say it with bling by want 2 scrap was put on the outside.  I stamped the border from Bird Houses from JustRite on white and mounted it on the pink from the backside of the DP.  This was cut with the large scallop circles from Spellbinders.  The leaves were colored with Copic Markers and Pearl Ink from Viva finished off the border.  The Birdhouse was stamped on white and colored with Copic Markers and it too was mounted on the backside and cut and mounted the same as the border. I did use some Antique Linen Distress Ink on the scalloped paper.   The inside of the card ( right) was stamped Happy Birthday from the JustRite  "Baroque Nested Frames and Occasions.  So we have a card and an envelope all in one and I am putting it in the JustRite Challenge  050 Spring or Birthday Gift or Envelope.  Hope you enjoy.
