New challenge at TPV! :)

The new paper crafting challenge is up at The Paper Variety

I've never made matching envies with my cards before so I was pretty excited to get started on this challenge. Paper and Such (our sponsor) kindly supplied the entire TPV DT with their clear stamps sets to use on our cards - fabulous! I chose this sweet set, You Lift Me...

So precious. Here's what I came up with..

My card was made simply by masking a frame then adding the sentiment and image. The 2 elements I used on the envelope are distress ink and the stamped balloon. The girl and balloon are adhered with popdots giving them some great dimension...

I really love how this turned out and I think I might try to make matching envies for my cards in the future. It really is an extra special touch. :)

I hope you'll join us for this challenge! Paper and Such has donated an awesome prize..

See here for all the details :)

Happy April Fool's Day!!!
