Oriental Stamp Art March Monthly Technique Challenge

This week's challenge is to create an envelope.  I used my Envelope Punch Board to make my envelope and then thought about decorating it a little differently so I went into my stash and found some embossed papers and added it to the envelope.  Then I thought I needed a card to go with it so I made a card using the same embossing folder.  I used two of Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. stamp sets for the card.  I used the water lily from the Lotus Blossoms set and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the new Birds of the Orient set which I kind of tweaked by bending it to fit the Spellbinder banner and used 3D dots to raise it all up.  I also used Spellbinders Labels One. 
Here is my envelope and card:
I have added a stamped image to my envelopes many times but this really got me doing something entirely different than what I've done before and I really had fun with this challenge.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great week and get in some time to create.
Hugs & Blessings,
