Pretty in Pink......

Orange and Green and Pink these are the colours to be used for Tando Creative Challenge this month
I have recycled an envelope and decorated into a gift envelope for giving money or gift cards etc.  I have many birthdays in January including my daughter's she will be 40.........omg how did that happen!!

I had great fun making  this rummaging through my papers and flowers and ribbons to find the colours I needed and once gathered together I just had a great time cutting and sticking it all together.

I added distress ink vintage photo to all the edges including  the tag, Happy Birthday was stamped in black archival, pieces of washi tape were torn and added to the pink spotty paper and to the tag between the ribbons the green rickrack is velvet it is gorgeous in real life.

I would also like to play at
