Matching Card & Envelope - TPV

The Paper Variety's current challenge is to create a card and a coordinating envelope.

My friend Tanya was so sweet to send me some adorable card blanks from Michael's.
Because my silly Michael's doesn't carry them!
I owe her big time because I am IN LOVE with this shape . . .

So fun, right?
I traced the edge onto some chipboard to create a pattern,
cutting it just inside the line so it would fit perfectly on my card front.

I duplicated the edge for my envelope.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline - {Dilly Dally}.

Some washi tape and Doodle twine for a banner,
washi and toothpicks for the flags,
a simple rosette and a stamped greeting.

(And yes, I am having a love affair with polka dots right now!)
