The Color Room Palette 87 - Happy Birthday to You! {Card}

Just popping in with a quick share today!  A card
I made for the latest palette over at The Color Room.

Such a pretty palette I couldn't resist!  I actually made
a layout too, but I'll share that tomorrow - too tired now!

I made this for a great friend of ours who has a 
special birthday celebration coming up soon &
we're invited!  She's a classy lady - artistic, but 
doesn't like  anything too overly shabby chic.

These days I've learnt to choose the envelope FIRST 
{I have a box full of pretty colours} 
then make my card the correct size and colours to match.

Drove myself crazy in the past trying to find envelopes
to match my cards!

Hahaha yes, I think you should choose the envelope first. I usually give my handmade cards in a nice box so I seldom use envelope. This is a beautiful card, Helen!! She gotta love it! xoxo.
