Card Patterns Sketch #97 & Just Us Girls Challenge #66 "Envy of Envies"

I entered this card into 2 different challenges.  I used sketch #97 from Card Patterns and  Just Us Girls Challenge #66 wanted us to join in on a 3 part challenge this week.

1.  make a card
2.  decorate envelope to match your card
3.  line your envelope

I love making these "tall" cards.  This one measures 4 x 9 1/4 inches.  I usually make all my cards 5 x 5 inches, but the postage is killing me.  So I must start making cards that only require 44 cents to mail instead of $1.22.  But I love my 5 x 5's!!

what I used................................
paper - 
American Crafts "Love"
Always, Falling and Many Splendered
Jillibean Soup
New England Chowder - fresh thyme
kraft & red dotted scraps
Fiskars heart punches
Marvy Uchida scallop punches
bakers twine
Hero Arts stamp
Martha Stewart tinsel glitter
Dew Drop pigment ink
Inkssentials glossy accents
