In the past I've shied away from challenges, as I find them challenging. But I'm trying a variety of ways to jump the creative spark plugs, and ended up enjoying this one quite a bit.
The Essentials by Ellen April Mix it Up Challenge is to use stamps/dies from both Essentials by Ellen and Lawn Fawn. I am a HUGE fan of Julie Ebersole and her stamps and dies and cards and videos, so I had plenty of inspiration.
For this card and envelope I paired Essentials by Ellen Bokeh Dots and the flower in Bold Blooms with Lawn Fawn's Violet's ABCs. (Lawn Fawn makes the easiest to use alphabet stamps.)
Can you see the pale pink flower on the envelope liner? My favorite part of the design.

Thanks, again, for all the happy wishes for the blog and my retirement. I'm still getting the hang of a whole new way of living and blogging may continue a bit sporadic until I get into a routine.
