Don't Envie this post!

Well I have to say that this week's FFF challenge is a first for me!  I have never decorated an envelope, and that is just what this week's challenge is all about.  So I tried to decorate an envelope and tried as hard as I could to keep it flat (in case I actually wanted to mail it)!  So that means no buttons or ribbon!  Eeek!!  I didn't think I could do it! 
So if your up to extending your card crafting skills into the realm of envelopes give this challenge a try!  There's even a prize up for grabs! 

Stop by The Greeting Farm blog for more inspiring envelopes! The little cutie on my card is Nahla and she is from the Spotlight collection.
Her skin tone was created using Copics  E13,15,17

Melyssa, I cannot believe you were actually stumped by a challenge. lol I think you did a great job of decorating your envelope, and I understand the challenge of not adding buttons, flowers, or ribbons!
