Cardelope (CIC263)

Come join us at Cupcake Inspirations for our new challenge!

Robyn's Fetish is sponsoring our challenge this week.

They are offering THREE digital images to our randomly chosen winner. Wow!

Thank you so much, Robyn's Fetish!

This week our challenge is to use FLOWERS.
Here's my interpretation...a graduation cardelope for a sweet cousin of mine. :)  

I created a "cardelope" with an envelope I made using my Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. I got the size wrong for the original card and it has just been sitting around since. I thought I would actually use the envelope as the card. 

I am using Robyn's Fetish Sunflower 2 and it colors up so nice. I used my Prismacolor pencils. The Kraft is Neenah Desert Storm, the black and white stripe is Crate Paper's On Trend, and the green polka dot is Echo Park's Paper and Glue. Stampin' Up's Teeny Tiny sentiment is stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink. The die cuts are from two different sets of Nestabilities. 

I left space behind my image so that I could slip a gift card in for her gift. 

This is the finished product. I love it!! The papers are scraps from the same lines as above cut from Stampin' Up's tag punches. The ribbon is recycled from a birthday gift one of my girls got this year. The twine is unknown. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
