Happy birthday

Who wants some snow? We have way too much of it!! It's been snowing on and off for the last 3 days. I do like snow, but even for me this is a little bit too much. I hope we'll get some sun and spring weather soon. I'm just happy I have a week off and I don't have to go anywhere  this week. Driving in this ... No thank you! Plus, it's a good excuse to stay in and do some crafting. :)

Earlier this month it was my mum's birthday and I bought her 2 tickets (so she can take my dad with her) for one theatre show which she wanted to see. Since I didn't want to give her the tickets in a plain white envelope, I decided to make an envelope myself. I grabed my floral cardstock from Folia and got to work. And here's what I came out with ...

This is the front of the envelope. I decorated it with some flowers that I made with TH Tattered florals die and my craft punch and with MS butterflies. The flowers were cut from a white cardstock and then inked with TH distress inks. For the center of the flowers I used gold Viva decor pearl pen. With G Studio stamps I wrote "vse najboljše". This is in Slovenian and it means "happy birthday". I inked the edges with TH Brushed corduroy and Antique linen distress inks.

Here's how the back of the envelope looks like. As you can see I used some more flowers which I made with my punches and dies. I also used my border punch. That brown paper is from Provo Craft.

And here's the inside of the envelope. I stamped the insice with Faded text background stamps from Stampabilities and inked the edges with TH distress inks.

I would like to enter my project to the following challenges:
Inky chicks: Mother's day or birthday (I chose birthday)
ABC challenge: H for happy birthday
Creative card crew: Birthday

Word art Wednesday: Anything goes
