Confetti seed packet card and envelope

Here is my second entry into MIM#155 challenge for this week.  I searched through my card sketches from the February 2014 release and found a sketch that would accommodate a seed packet die that I could fill with confetti pieces.  It was inspired by one of Dawn's card from the last release.  Anyway, I used a color scheme from a palette that Nicole gave us last year or the year before.  Again, I am trying to be original and come up with my own creations using sketches and color schemes I have collected.  This card turned out okay.  The colors looked washed out in my photo.  Also, too much green confetti tried to take center stage in my seed packet, and I didn't want that.  You can tuck a gift card or folded up money into the seed packet for a gift.  The left over confetti will go in the envelope for a fun, festive, and messy surprise when opening the envelope.

stamps: four square, ruby rose additions (free set)
paper and inks: sweet blush, hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz, new leaf, and summer sunrise
accessories: circle cover plate die, seed packet die, paper clip, twine, sequins
