Pocket gift card

This weeks challenge over at the Arty Girlz blog is 'pockets'. This is my entry.
My friends daughter will be 16 next month, and she will be old enough to play the lottery, No, I'm not endorsing gambling for teenagers, but its summat both my girls wanted to have a go at when they were 16 just because they could. My friend and I never know what to get each others girls for their birthdays so we send money instead, a lot easier than traipsing around the shops buying a top or jeans that they will want to exchange a week later!

So I made this card which houses a lotto ticket and a small envelope for the money.
It is made from denim blue pearlescent card, a silver gel pen, scraps of lilac ribbon & pink and white card and a small envelope that I cut from 200gsm vellum, I added a tiny 'for you' sticker to the envelope so that she will know to take the envelope out from the pocket. Hope you like my card.

BTW, the lotto ticket in the photo is from last saturdays draw and when I looked at it to use it for the photos I realised that we have won £10, yay! (wish it was £10mil tho)
