Cardabilities Sketch #100 Reveal!

This sketch really was challenging for me!  I always enjoy little envelopes and pockets to put gift cards, etc within it, however a whole envelope on the front???!!!  Yup - and I love how it turned out!  Here is the awesome sketch....

And here is my take on it.... 

I embossed the Maya Road envelope with the Maggie Holmes Crate Paper doily embossing folder and then lightly inked it with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  I then found some really old Tattered Angel gold glaze and went over the embossed images with a paintbrush to make them shiny and a bit two-toned in color.  I added some stitching (of course!) and two Tim Holtz gears in place of the original round thingys (don't know what they are called)  :)  so that you can open and close the envelope.  The leaves were cut with my Cameo using some Basic Grey paper.  I love how it turned out and hope someone special will too!  The saying is from Pickled Potpourri Designs which is our sponsor for this reveal!
