Mother-Daughters Time

Dolce and I drove to CA to spend a few hours with Clare, I am happy that I get to see her again
Plus we get to go to Ikea!!!! (happy happy me!!!!!)

So this is a pre-scheduled post

...............

The Challenge:


This week is my favorite people - Melissa Phillips, making a card with matching envelope, focusing on the beautiful envelope, love it (Watch video by Melissa HERE)

Here's the front of the envelop....


and the back.....



I used 3 stamp sets from Papertrey Ink on this project

PTI Postmarks stamp set (I love this and used it a lot)

and the orange and yellow polka dots patterned paper is also from PTI


now every pretty envelope needs a pretty matching card right? LOL!


vintage button and twine are both from Papertrey Ink


the card is basically using the same stamp set and die as the envelope


it is weird that this time I actually started with the envelope and then make a matching card, LOL!


 like the envelope said - 

Wishing you a fabulous day!
