Friendship Gardens

 Back for one more post!

This next creation will be entered into the following Challenges:

Simon Says Monday, Anything But A Card.
Simon Says Wednesday, Favorite Technique--more coloring!!!
Dies R Us, Anything Goes.

I used an old wood mounted Stampin' Up! stamp, Friendship Gardens.
Poppies and sentiment are from Gina K Designs, Stately Flowers 1.
Copic Markers.
Amalgam Black ink.

MFT Cross Stitched Rectangles die.
PTI Scallop Rectangle die from Shakers and Sprinkles Kit.
These dies were layered on front and back and then
adhered to a Vellum Envelope I made using my Envelope Maker Board.
Designer Paper Envelope Liners.

I also added a premade Vellum Envelope to the back 
so I can write a little note and tuck it inside.
The large Vellum pocket is perfect for tucking a packet or two of flower seeds into.

Thanks so much for popping in!

Hope your day feels like SPRING!!!
