Challenge #33- Don't Forget the Envelope

The inside of a card is not the only way to continue the design of your card. What about the envelope? It's a great canvas that gives your recipient a sneak peek of the happy mail inside. So today we are introducing the envelope challenge...
...and we are lucky enough to welcome back Jennifer McGuire with not only another fabulous card, but another video as well!
