a birthday card for a friend. . . .

which I will also submit to the Word Art Wednesday challenge which is always anything goes:


Several patterned papers, some flower trim, a butterfly punch and one Penny Black stamp were used for this card.  I also added some enamel dots for a bit of embellishment.  Something I used to do a lot and am now trying to do more often is line the envelope to match the card when possible.  Thought I would show it here.

Thanks for visiting.

This is absolutely GORGEOUS, Joy! I, too, love how you've lined the inside of your envelope to match. I've never done this, but I just may have to steal this idea from you. It's lovely. Thank you so much for sharing your delightful art in our challenge and please join us again very soon.
God's blessings to you,

Great mix of patterned paper for this card, Joy! Love the extra attention given to the envie!

Linda said...

such a pretty card! I think it makes the card even more special to have a decorated or lined envie. That fabric flower trim is one of my faves-I get mine by the yards at JoAnne's :)

Wonderful mix of papers. Love the sentiment beibg the "star" of the card. and, I so love the envie liner, too cool.

This is such a beautiful card, Joy! I love your sentiment and how you really jazzed up your card with such pretty details! Thanks for the reminder to line the envie...I always forget, and it adds such a special touch! I'm sure your friend will love it, too!

Such a special card, Joy! This is so darn sweet - every detail! Love that envelope, too (I used to do that, too). This is one of my very favorite Joy cards EVER......so much joy in a card!

What a sweet design! Love that daisy flower trim! I never think to line my envies- I love the coordinated look (and it's not like I don't have loads of pp!)
