Best Friend Twin Sister's Birthday

     My baby sister, who is now my twin sister, (life is interesting like that around here) had a birthday on Tuesday.  She cherishes anything I make for her so I wanted to make something special.  This is my first "collage" card.  I think it came out really pretty.  I have had this stamp in my stash for a year or two and always wanted to color it and finally did.  I just love it.  It reminds me of vintage art.  After creating the card I realized it didn't fit ANY of my envelopes.  It was 1/8" to big- grrrrr!   I finally went to my trustee wall paper books and used some pretty Laura Ashley Paper to make a little package envelope that fit perfectly.  The scraps led to a totally different card which I will be finishing up soon and posting.
