A little envelope art (2nd Friday post!!)

I found an envelope for the graduation card in the post below.  The envelope looked a little old (not in  a good way) around the edges, so I decided to add some color.  Then on the back flap I thought it would be fun to add an Oregon "O". 




 Then the front looked a little plain.  So I decided to add a photo corner stamp to enclose Elizabeth's name.  The stamp didn't work so well.  I had 2 choices:  start over or keep going.  I decided to keep going.  I found some yellow and green tissue paper.  That was looking pretty flat.  I had some  beautiful handmade laying near by, so I grabbed some of it and added that too!  Much better, but not quite done.  Decided to add the lettering (stamps). Done!  I liked it, so I figured Dave would not care for it. (You've heard the term "opposites attract", that's us.)  He liked it!  Even said I  should start selling the to Oregon!!!    (BTW it looks better in person that it does in this photo.)


It no longer looks "old",  looks happy and cheerful!
