Birthday Greetings

JustRite  Friday Challenge 050: Spring or Birthday Gift or Envelope is the current challenge. Scor-Pal is one of the sponsors on this. I created a card which is also being entered in Joan's Garden who is sponsoring a JustRite challenge and the design if for the Mojo Monday 181 challenge.




I feel in most cases that my cards are a gift by themselves, but this one also has an envelope to accompany it.  I decided to decorate the front of the envelope as well.  Of course this is not a card that will go into the mail.  The card and envelope were created with My Mind's Eye paper "Stella and Rose".  The flower and brad are from the same line.  The pearls are from Amuse.  I used a Scor-Pal for the fold on the card and to create the pointed flap envelope.  A Martha Stewart punch was used to create the border on the angled paper and on the envelope.    I used the JustRite set "You Inspire Me for the card and stamped "Just for You" on the envelope from the Fancy Labels set.
