Second take on Embellish Challenge.

Evening everybody,

I have a second take on the Embellish Background Stamping challenge.
Here is the photo for you.

Why I did a second take on the challenge? Its  because of Ashley Cannon Newell’s Watch me Wednesday last week’s video. Here is the link to her card and the video. I love Ashley card especially background stamping and the colors Ashley has used on her card. So I set out to make a similar background for my card but using the colors on the challenge So here is my version.

I had an envelope already which I have used on my card. I used Papertrey Ink Postmarks stamp on the envelope as a background as well.. Here is a closeup for you.
Stamps from Papertrey Ink- Text background stamp, 2010 Anniversary stamp, Just the ticket and Postmarks stamp sets. Cardstock and Ink again from papertrey Ink. The envelope from K&Co, Twine from Twinery, flowers from Prima Marketing, Rose flower and Key from Kaisercraft and Lace from my stash.
The envelope is detachable and can be opened to put money. I love pocket cards. You can put in some nice surprise inside. I love this card because how all came together beautifully. Hope you like the card too.
Thanks for the challenge and thanks for stopping by!
