CSF Birthday Challenge

This years Birthday Challenge at craft swap forum was to design an envelope and card insert to celebrate our fab forums 2nd Birthday. My Team is called Six Pistols, and our Virtuous Leader is Linda. our theme is floral, and having just aquired the cricut expressions thought i should try to use it for my insert card. i had originally made my envelope using the cutter, but thought, "wee bit too fussy". so decided to go with simple instead. the paper pattern is made using my cupcakes cd. and the wording and the flowers are with the cricut. i decided to make my envelope simple as well, tying with cream silk/embroidered rose pattern ribbon. with a few wee flowers on the reverse, didnt photograph the other side. the paper again was made using my cupcakes CD. and i edged the flap of the envelope with cutting machine.
still havent decided wether to put a butterfly on insert or envelope, will have to decide soon as im posting it tomorrow.
anyway thats my attempt, well the eventual one i settled for. our book is for charity, so i wish our Team and the other teams at CSF well when the auction starts for the finished books.
