A Shaped card and matching Envelope for Virginia's View Challenge #5

Just popping in to share a card I made for  Virginia's View Challenge #5. There are over 300 entries this time...GO Ladies!
 I finally got the dies from PPP and simply HAD to play with them for a bit. I used the border die to create a shape of sorts for a fun twist. Jennifer McGuire shows how to achieve something similar here.

Here is a close-up of how nicely the layers matched up using the dies.
The stitching is the SWEETEST:) and the sequins from PPP are like CANDY!

Then I used the die to emboss an envelope to match...I was THRILLED with the results!
