Simon Says Stamp, PTI MIM, CR84FN and Young Crafter's Unite

Using CR84FN's color combo (graphic below) and Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday pocket card challenge, I whipped together something with the lovely Happy Hydrangea stamp set.

After measuring the dimensions to fit an A2 envelope,  I cut and scored some Spring Moss cardstock. Though I was this close to sewing it together at this point, I remembered to do my stamping first so the ink would not show up on the stitching. I considered several purples before deciding on PTI's new Winter Wisteria.

After sewing the edges, I recalled that I had wanted to cut out a small portion of the front to allow for some dimension. Thankfully, my 1 3/4" circle punch was able to slip in and do the deed.

I went back and forth about adding ribbon, as Heather did for her project. I decided to keep bulk down.

I am also entering this into this week's Simon Says Stamp challenge: Anything Goes and Young Crafter's Unite: Flowers.
