MIM #124

Melissa dresses up envelopes on this week's MIM.
Her style puts a smile inside me. Not to mention, an inspiration to let my frilly vintage self
out! Love everything she does! 
But... oldest granddaughter graduated this year from high school, and we owe her a biggie gift.
Taylor Ashton doesn't have a frilly scalloped bone in her. Totally simple, contemporary, and purple lover since forever!
Here's her card:
Pinterest inspired graduate cap, lots of silver, and of course, PURPLE!
On the left is the envelope/card holder, a Papertrey stamp container, remade.
Wrapped the box in Just the Ticket and Purple Plum and Plum Pudding card stock.
Large Limitless Layers Ovals stamp embossed with Red, White and Blue.
Sentiment: Bigger Blooms. 
Stars die cut and stamp embossed with Military Stars.
Backside with Plum Pudding Cardstock showing through and tickets taped with silver star Washi.
The gift (money) is inside the card. This is one fussy lady. Know she'll appreciate cash more than any other gift while away at college.
My fussy vintage lacy finger are itching to decorate another envelope! So back to the cave to try another 'Dressed Up' Envelope.
Always fun with Melissa!
