Hello my Lovelies, a quick post to show the envelope
for the retirement card, I dug out my script stamps to
make the name and the red Mom is a tease from my
scrap page which is done, I'll post that soon.. 

I used an old envelope , I should have sanded it
I used scrunched white tissue glued on top, and a
napkin with a lily of the valley. inked it with tea stain

Same on the back..
 I cut it to size and I scored it in half of circle
to make room in for the bulkiness of the card.
Now I can get on with my tags and gifts but for
now I'll be flying around to visit and get my inspiration fix...
Hope you have a wonderful creative day..

Exquisite! I love that your attention to beautiful details goes right the way to the envelope. The texture and delicate image from the napkin work together beautifully - just lovely, Dianne!

Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
