Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 168

Welcome to another challenge from Speedy Fox & Friends on Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s challenge blog.  This week, Pat has asked us to make a card or project using our favorite technique.  When I have time (which doesn't seem often enough), I love to make handmade envelopes to match the card.  For my card, I used Basic Grey's Konnichiwa DP and used 3 separate pieces between the card and the envelope that coordinate.  I used matching card stock and on the flap attached a piece of the DP and on the front, I used one of the lotus blossom images from the new stamp set featured on my card - titled Lotus Blossoms. 

Use the hot link above to jump over to MFP's challenge blog so you can get some inspiration from the DT.  The winner will receive this adorable stamp set as a prize:
