Papertake - Sketch Envelope

This weeks challenge over at Papertake weekly is another of Katharinas fab sketches #28 and this week Whiff of Joy (Katharina's stamp company) are sponsoring the challenge!

Instead of using the sketch on the card I decided to use it on the envelope, the idea for these (I managed to make six in an evening) is to be a little pocket card with a prayer inside for expectant couples!
I wanted neutral tones to suit a couple! this wood paper really is lovely for embossing I adhered it to some card first! This holds the flap of the envelope closed! I have used acetate behind the aperture to hold the embellishments!

In fishing my boyfriend just has to have the latest in new gear and he is called tackle tart, well.... in the crafting world I must be a tool tart, I just can't help but want the next new thing and I "treated" (makes buying stuff sound more acceptable!) myself to the new Sizzix movers and shapers! Very pleased with them, love how easy they are to duplicate! your designs!

Paper: K&Co - lifes journey, wood paper, white card,
Die's: Sizzix
movers and shapers, flower layers, button, cross embossing folder, punches - foot, butterfly.
PTI - out on a limb,
Ink: Adirondak, colourbox creamy brown,
Other: Glue pen, 3D foam, double sided adhesive sheet, yummy adhesive lace ribbon & gem.
