More Pretty Mail

I really want to thank all of you that commented on my weight loss journey post!
You all are terrific and so supportive!
Also a Reminder, FUSION starts tomorrow!
Now onto today's little post:

Designing  Elements

Turn a "Challenge" card into
 Mail Worthy PRETTY MAIL!!!!

Do you ever make a challenge card for a specific challenge, 
though it is pretty general?
Make it specific!!
For this card challenge, the 2 images were offset in the top mid right
slightly askew. 
I chose two happy papers the stripes and some happy speech bubbles
I  fussy cut from the American Crafts My Girl Pad. 

I turned this "challenge card" into a birthday card
 by adding a Memory Box Perched Bird 
from interesting scrap
and added the sentiment from the Inkadinkadoo  
A Life's Journey Clear Stamp Set

[I did have a larger envelope, though I trimmed the overlap of stripe paper
 for mailing in a standard size as I am saving the odd larger sizes for items I refuse to trim ]

See - you've done precisely what I commented on in your previous post: transforming your initial card - which was awesome - applied some of your Kimberley pixie-dust magic - and voila...a fresh, new card. Amazing!! Your envelope...wonderful special touch!
