envelope art plus a card to match

The challenge for The House Mouse #83 is envelope art. I haven't decorated envelopes very much in the past but I like the way they look! I need to start doing this more! I colored this House Mouse image with Copic markers. The pine needle stamp is Verve. Sorry if the envelopes looks dirty, they are not! I have cleaned and cleaned my scanner but can't get all of the glue off! 

You are probably supposed to make the card and then the envelope to match but I did the opposite! Tonite, I created this card to go with the envelope! I am entering it into 2 challenges.

Inspirational Card Sketches # 92
Creative Inspirations 88 #- Color Scheme-red, gold and green

I colored this image with Copic markers. The pine needle stamp is Verve and the background stamp is StampinUp that is embossed with gold embossing powder. The edges of the green panels and image are embossed with gold too. The green panel is K&Co.  The inside saying is StampinUp.  Thanks for stopping by!
