Dear Scrappers,

For this challenge, I though about my father, who is almost officially in remission after having to go through painful treatments for his Basal Cell carcinoma (type of skin cancer). His birthday is on February 18 and he might be visiting his family at that point, so I decided to make him a card just so:

I started with this empty envelope and made a pocket card scraplifting and idea from my friend Carol...

This is the final card, using the lavender ribbon and wings die cuts.

I added a ribbon to keep the card shut.

The inside of the card, with the pocket for a gift card or in my case a bookmark, I'm planning to make for my father:

I used the new tool Carol gave for Christmas: the groove and distressed all edges of the papers using twilight ink from CTMH. All papers, envelope and ribbon are CTMH as well. The die is from spellbinders and the stamp I can really recall.
You can see the pocket better in this picture:
