Happy Mothers Day Card - Scrap For Help 'Old Envelopes'

This months challenge theme for Scrap For Help is using 'Old Envelopes'. 

Scrap for Help is a community blog - promoting friendship and the use of recycled products around the globe.  Each month there is a challenge, with the theme's each being related to using something that is able to be recycled.  There are a number of wonderful sponsors who support in generous prizes, so please call on over and check the challenge out, grab some inspiration from the International design team members, and perhaps take the time to participate.

You can find all the current challenge details 'HERE'
I created my card using My Minds Eye 'Market Place' 6 X 6 collection - layering the various papers and sewing around the edges. Beautiful guipure lace, seam binding and a floral arrangement are highlighted around the envelope, which would be perfect for hiding a personal note to the receiver.

Wishing all the Mum's out there, a wonderful Mothers Day
Sandie
