Birthday Card ~ Envie Celebration

I started by making this little card with my envelope punch board.
Next I embossed the envelope and added the liner.
I die cut the sentiment banners from dark brown and then again with the gold design paper.
A little trimming of  the gold banners and the brown banners make great frames.
The happy from one stamp set and the birthday from another make a fun card sentiment.
Add little sponging, celebration swirls and a ribbon bow and my card is finished.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Happy sentiment from the So Happy stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Birthday sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set from Verve Stamps.
*Banner cuts from the Flag It Die Set from Verve Stamps.
*Envelope made with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.
*Envelope embossed using the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave folder.
*Swirls from a tiny punch from Michaels.
*Design paper from the Recollections sweet Flora paper pad.
*CTMH Sunflower stamp pad.
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Offray.

May your day always be filled with love.
