CAS in green

Today, I'll post a very simple card to discontinue my blog silence ;)
Actually, rather than a card it was meant to be a gift envelope to get mom the 2017 highway vignette for Slovenia. Because without it, she'd list one excuse after another as to why she can't come visit me - from the vignette being too expensive to not knowing the local roads to go without it. As I had no time to prepare something really special and my main criteria was something flat enough to fit in a normal envelope, I ended up with this:
A very CAS card base made of recycling paper with a Google Maps print of the Ljubljana area. In addition to that, I only used a light green background paper with texture and two little green gemstones. 
On the inside of the card, I placed a strip of punched green texture paper that acts as a pocket for the vignette itself.
A little contribution to the March collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.
