* Gift Envelope *

I wanted to take the Get Sketchy Challenge again this week, since it has been quite a while since I last used one of there sketches. However, again I found it a tough sketch. But while reading one of the older issues of Cards Only I noticed a money envelope and I used this idea to combine with the sketch of Get Sketchy. Luckily I have some extra spare time, because normally I wouldn't take the time to make such a project. But I enjoyed it :) and like the outcome. In fact I like it so much, it will be tough to give it away.
I used a digi stamp again, this time from Sassy Cheryl's and combined them with with the great Paper Mania papers again. I dusted off my flower punches to combine them to make a handmade large flowerset. Too bad, you can hardly see the layer of doily lace I added.
I am still doubting if I should add something to the back of the envelope or if I should leave it as it is.... Supplies: white envelope as base, green, pink and aqua cardstock, Paper Mania papers, doily lace paper, Sassy Cheryls digistamp, scalloped scissors, roses, organza ribbon, white puffy paint, some bling bling.

I am entering the following challenges with this project:

Get Sketchy: challenge 34

Pollycraft: challenge 41 handmade flowers

One stitch at a time : Challenge 10 flowers

Stamp scrap & doodle saturdays: challenge 37 girlee

Die cut dreams: Challenge 45 make your own flowers

Pile it on: challenge 16 make it sweet

Crafty angels online: Challenge 32 Summer

I also did a new update on the look of my blog. I used Raspberry Road Designs April Showers kit and I totally love the colors. I think I will leave it like this for a while. I still need to figure out how to add a graphic instead of text for titles in my sidebars & then the look is complete :)
