RS54 - Happy Birthday

Well, Hello!  Here with a card for the Retro Sketches Challenge#54.  This is a TALL card! About 11"
My friend gave me a thank you card that was in a beautiful (untouched) envelope - so I figured I'd recycle the envelope by making a card to fit!

When I saw the sketch - I knew this tall card would work perfectly! I used my DCWV glitter flower paper and a PTI diecut and sentiment.  I jazzed it up with two glitter brads and  then for fun I added some flicks of Dylusion sprays.

Hope you have a great day!!!!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Eleven inches? Yowzah! But what a dramatic card to go with all that height. Love the touches of blue with the yellow.

So very charming is this card. The paper is awesome and I like those splatters.
How clever to recycle an envelope.

Great idea to recycle that envelope, and beautiful card, Maria! I really like that tall, tall shape, and love the color combo. The combo of the elegant glittered paper and the rustic ink flecks is fabulous!
