Allsorts Challenge 526: Perfect Pairs

Saturday again, another scheduled post from me. It's Brenda theme this week at Allsorts challenge and she wants to see "Perfect Pairs". This means she would like to see a card with matching evelope, or a card with matching gift box or bag, maybe a card with a bookmark, etc. Be sure to check out the challenge blog for some wonderful inspiration!

All stamps are from Hero Arts, the sitting mouse, dandelions, bugs and sentiment were part of the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero December stamp kit, the flying mouse was part of a free set Hero Arts included as a Thank You that month. Unfortunately this stamp kit has sold out and is no longer available. I know dandelion are mostly seen as a weed, but I happen to love them - always have and always will, and this one might have been my favorite kit I received from Hero Arts.

If you would like to become a Hero Arts stamp kit subscriber, you can read more about it here. I've been a subscriber for 8 months, but decided to take a break from subscriptions for now .... but definitely I am still keeping an eye on the kits, as they are such a great value. Cancelling was super easy by the way, all I had to do was send an email and they removed me from auto subscription. 
PS: The June Stamp kit is currently available for purchase. 

Ok, back to my "perfect pairs". I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink on Xpress it Blending card and used Copic markers for coloring. An ancient Stampin Up clouds stencil was used to ink up the sky on both the card and envelope with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide . The sentiment which is also part of the kit has been heat embossed using super fine white embossing powder on black card stock.

Below is a closer look at the envelope. My envelope is A2 sized to fit the A2 sized card. Again, everything was stamped with Memento ink and colored with  Copic markers.
