This card is my take on a sketch challenge posted on the Paper Wishes Message Board. I took several liberties with the sketch, but was intrigued by the little envelope in the sketch. I have an old book from Hot Off the Press that has a bunch of vellum envelopes in it and I've been trying to figure out how to use them, so I figured this was a perfect chance to try.
For the corner treatments, I used a spellbinders die from the Decorative Labels Twenty-seven set with purple glimmer paper and threaded a white ribbon and purple piece through that. The flowers are from the same vellum book as the envelope - cut out and backed with white paper so they can be seen better.
I made a little greeting to go in the envelope by using a small embossing folder that I inked with some dusty concord distress ink before embossing. Here's a picture with the little greeting mostly pulled out of the envelope so you can see it:
