Here's the challenge graphic:
I created a fusion of both sketch and photo, by focusing on the mail theme, the woodgrain and the colors in the photo. I created a mini envelope from a MFT die that I die-cut from some woodgrain paper that I sponged over with Peacock Feathers ink. I used some thread and the smaller dies in the set to create a closure for the envelope.
The same woodgrain paper without the ink was used down the right hand side of the Desert Storm card base. After doing some surgery to a stamp by cutting it apart, I stamped the sentiment on a die-cut strip of patterned paper designed to look like a notebook page, which fit quite well with the theme! To help the envelope stand out from the card base, I backed it with a scalloped square cut from black cardstock.
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you'll head over and see what the rest of the design team have done with this challenge.
