Bookmark in Envelope

I made another bookmark, and this one has it's own little envelope.

I stamped Blush in yellow and green on a white scrap and then stamped the sentiment in green.  I coloured the happy face and the top of the flower with a yellow coloured pencil and added yellow glitter.  I inked the edges of the bookmark in green and sponged green shadow ink over the entire bookmark.  I made the little "envelope" from yellow cardstock, stamped the sentiment in green, and added green ribbon.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Blush (Penny Black), For You sentiment (Stampin' Up), other sentiment (dollar store)
  • Ink:  Ancient Page - Pine and Saffron
  • Coloured Pencil:  Prismacolor
  • Glitter, ribbon:  Dollar store
I would like to enter the following challenges:

I love how the flower appears like it is growing out of the bookmark...such a clever idea. A beautiful, summery feel too.
