Special Delivery Challenge - Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary

Okay normally I don't post more than once a day - see below for my Valentine Rakarama post. However I saw the challenge posted on Papertrey Ink's blog. I've just been making some little notes for friends at work - and decided I'd enter in this challenge. I made envelopes with the WeRMemory Keepers Envelope Punch Board using the paper (My Minds Eye) I used in my Rakarama cards. I had lots of scraps :-) perfectly sized for these little cards. The cards themselves are 3x4. I cut some gold shimmery cardstock I've had in my stash forever using the Wonderful Words: Friends die. I also used a PTI scallop die. The inside sentiment is from Boutique Borders: Friends. Such a pretty sentiment.  For the envelope I used the Label Basics dies to cut out the two angled rectangles (one from the My Minds Eye paper and one from Rustic White cardstock).  The envelope sentiment is from Mini Blooms. I also used some kraft and fine linen inks to age that sentiment strip.  And the flower - I ripped a page from an old dictionary and cut it using the Notched Flowers die.  I stippled the flowers with some SU Purely Pomegranate ink as well as the PTI Kraft and Fine Linen inks. The button is from the Holiday Mix Vintage button collection. I stitched those flowers together with my bakery twine.
Sorry about the pics - I'm in a rush to get these finished - hope you're having a good Valentine's Day!
