Penny Black Week 30 Challenge

I may just lose a friend with this one....I've made a spotty wallet to contain a few little gifts for a very spotty lady (she's suffering from Chicken Pox at the moment). I didn't realise what I'd done until I'd finished the wallet card - talk about a Freudian slip!! I hope she takes it as a joke! It was meant to send her a hug - hence the stamp I chose.

I used the Penny Black Challenge for this wallet card. The theme this week is embossing. I kept my embossing simple, just used the Cuttlebug Swirls folder on a piece of thick pearlised vellum.

UPDATE - Oh! I've just seen that Papertake weekly has a challenge of "seeing spots" this week - How appropriate! ;-) I'd like to enter this for that challenge too.

The inside has been kept very simple - because I didn't want anything to distract her from the goodies in the envelope.

Items used:
K & Co papers
Pearlised Vellum
Penny Black 'Squeeze till I Squeak' stamp
Cuttlebug Swirls folder
All the other little bits of ribbons and flowers are from my stash.
