I bought these cute note cards complete with inside patterned envelopes
 at a discount store, and I actually just found them in my stash of items
that I didn't have a particular place for.
Sooo....I wanted to make a quick "congrats" card. 
 I never seem to have any on hand when I need one.

The blue and white background is the notecard itself.
The squares are PS, the flower and fancy stems are GS," congratulations" is NA, and the branches and picket fence are MS punches.
I rounded the corners, added glitter to the center of the flower, and popped the flower and the picket fence for dimension.
The back is reserved for either a printed or hand-written sentiment.

The inside of the envelope already had a printed design with a garden motiff.

I embossed the envelope with a CB folder for the finale.
I think it's a great touch!
