Anything but a card

Over at DU2DS this week the challenge is to make anything but a card. I made a card a few weeks back using UTEE to make the wings which makes them a bit delicate so it needed something a bit more than a normal envelope to go in and had not got around to making anything for it yet. So I took this challenge as being the perfect opportunity qnd have made an envelobox for it. I used the original design for the card.

The fairy is a Cute Daisy May download, coloured with copics. I did use the same colours as on the original card but they look so much brighter because I used proper copic paper for the envelope. Dont know if anyone else has tried it but it is gorgeous to colour on but it is oh so thin. Have found though that you can use photoglue to stick the copic paper onto thicker paper once you have coloured your image (and if you have more sense than me (okay I know that its not hard to have more sense than me - I admit to being sadly lacking in that department) before you cut it) and it doesnt show at all.
This time I used fairy dust on the wings - and this shows I'm not always totally stupid - so that it wasnt so delicate - or I would be making boxes for ever!!!!!!!!
