Spring Is In The Air

Even though it is raining outside and gloomy, Spring is on it's way! I have been working on two challenges today. This second one is for the JustRite 050 challenge. We are to make a Spring or birthday card and also make a matching envelope or gift package. I used the JustRite Bird Houses set. I just purchased this set and I love it! I colored the bird houses with re-inkers and a water color pen.  I used the sizzix Fleur de Lis die and a Nellie's circle die. The paper is from K&Co. I had to make my own envelope template to make it thick enough for my card. I used the Nellie die again for a window and backed the window with a piece of acetate. The strip holding the envelope together was made by using a Martha Stewart punch.  You can see the challenge by clicking here
