12 Months - January Envelope

The art challenge for January on the 12 months blog is to decorate an envelope. How could I pass by the chance to add the envelope in which I received some goodies from our blog host Bernice. Well it did have some lovely stamped pears on it.

I covered the rest with some giveaway papers and added some diecuts from another swap. I guess I didn't follow the art challenge at all but I did use what I had. I reinforced the envelope edge with some washi tape.

At the moment the envelope stays gaping open, I think it thinks it is a basking shark! I'll see how it goes but can always add a velcro fastener.

Gosh it is the February calendar pages next, the last month in this challenge.

Fun and funky. I love it. I got a laugh out of the comment about the envelope thinking it's a basking shark. Too funny. And using what you have on hand should be a priority in any challenge you participate in. Way to go.

That looks lovely - and yes I agree, using what you have on hand is important.
