GKD Monthly Mix - The Envelope Please

Dear Ones~
Today's offering has been made for the Stamp TV Monthly Mix Challenge. It has been far too long since I have participated in a Stamp TV Challenge and I greatly miss it. I'm so happy to have some time to play with my Gina Stamps. For this month's challenge we are to decorate an envelope. We can include a card if we like, which I have done, but the envelope is the star.

Here is my Creation:
I used Melanie's Year of Flowers 2 stamp set for this. The envelope was made with some patterned paper using my Envelope Punch Board. Then I stamped the images in the corner using the masking technique. I also stamped the images several times on plain paper, and then colored them with my Prismacolor Pencils. I have really been enjoying using my Prismas lately. After the images were colored they were fussy cut and I then constructed my card.

Here are the Ingredients:
Recollections Rose Petals Card Stock
GKD Warm Cocoa Card Stock
DCWV Preserved Paper Patterned Paper
GKD A Year of Flowers 2 Stamp Set
GKD Dark Chocolate Ink
Tropical Blooms Stamp/Die for Greeting
Prismacolor Pencils
Judy Dots

Thanks so much for taking a look. I really enjoyed making this set. I don't often decorate the envelope, and I think it's such a nice touch. Makes the handmade card even more special. I appreciate all your lovely comments, you are the best!
