365 Cards - #83 Make It Match

Today is the calm before the storm over at 365 Cards lol.  Apparently we are going to have two easy days and then look out hehe.  The challenge for today is to make it match as in your card has to have a matching envelope, any size as long as they matched.  So even though it is late here I had to go with this one (because I was not happy with it) as I am official babysitter to my 11mth old grandaughter this weekend and I have to get to bed hehehe instead of staying up until 3am or the likes, making cards and fiddling about.  One needs their beauty sleep.  These colours that I have used go together apparently according to a SU colour blending chart I used for the new in colours.  When I looked at them altogether they looked fine but now they don't.  Never mind it has to be today.  So without further ado here is my card with the matching envelope in the second pic.  I am off to bed now enjoy the rest of your day in the USA and for us here is Australia see you tomorrow lol.

In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies:  Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Sahara Sand cardstock.  Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Chocolate Chip and Old Oliver marker pens.  Old Olive grosgrain ribbon. Old Olive brad.  All those supplies are SU.  Ranger Distress Ink.

so beautiful, no one will even toss the envelopes with this challenge. It is funny to think of all our friends and family and the pile of cards, and now eps, getting bigger and bigger, and they know if we even think they threw them out we will fall over in a heap of tears, it makes me giggle.
