Envelope card!

I have been meaning to post this card for a few days now but never got round to it so here is is! Its  envelope card followed by Lena Katrines Tutorial over at the Lili of the Valley Ideas to Inspire Blog. I love the way its turned out.
The image is Birthday Fairy from LOTV and i have coloured her with Promarkers. The papers are Pink Pettycoat Vintage Rose that came with the Quick Cards Magazine. I love the papers, they are just so pretty. I  inked every edge in Stormy Sky Distress ink. The flowers are a mixture of WOC and Papermania. I made my own hat pin using the pink beads and secured then in the back of the flowers. I used a organza ribbon and layered a narrow lace on top to add a bit more texture. The sentiment is from Digital Doodling and again i inked the edge with the Stormy Sky ink. The brad, charm, chain and gems are all from my st

In the picture below it shows the envelope card closed over. I made the fastener from buttons and a length of fibre to wrap around the button to keep it closed.
The next picture is just showing the inside of the card. I have kept this quite plain so you can write your  own message inside.
The sentiment in here is cut from my Cricut Wild Card Cartridge. The edges again have been inked in Stormy Sky distress ink.

Here is the challenges i am going to enter; - Fancy Folds - Ribbons and Bows - Flowers - Bows, brads buttons and beads ( I used them all) - Someone Special (For My Princess!!) - Use a Die
