Sending My Love

First off, I can't say "thank you" enough to all of my sweet friends in the blogging world who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday.  You all are the best!  You really know how to make a girl feel special. :)

I had a bit of time yesterday afternoon to play in my scraproom (best. birthday. gift. ever.)  I decided to play along with 2 different {ippity} challenges going on right now.  The first is the BRIGHTS CHALLENGE on the {ippity} blog.  This striped paper from Sassafras Lass is super bright and funky!  The second is this week's sketch challenge at Chick Challenges {with ippity}.  Here is my card:

I absolutely loved the idea of adding an envelope to the front of your card, as the sketch shows.  I cut this little envelope using my Cricut Wild Card cartridge.  Although I adhered it shut, you could also make it a functional envie for a little note or gift card.  I moved the bow from the sketch over onto my card flap, and moved the sentiment lower on the envie.  The sentiment is from {ippity}'s How YOU Doin' stamp set, on of my favorites sets for cute little sentiments.

I am also sharing a project today over at I Heart {ippity}-hop on over and check it out!
