playing with envelopes

Hi guys hope you are all well,we are still having,wonderful weather here in Norfolk with lots of sunshine,and it is set to continue,this week too.
Well onto my creation,thanks to Sue for sending me lots more Tim die cuts I was able to play with some of my envelopes,and create this book,
I have used,3 6 by 6 square envelopes to create this pocket book.
First the inside  of the book.



Front of the book when its closed



How the book looks when it is open,and the box I made to go with it.


DP's Tim Holtz,dies,Tim's stamps,Tim;s too,tickets,all Tims,apart from the one,on the front which is from my dear friend Becs,store.  Handmade rossettes,which I cut the paper,into strips then scored them to make the flowers,metal embellishments,pieces of chipboard to create the fence,which were the pieces,from the cages.  The inks are,tattered rose ,and versa fine,rasberry which I stamped onto the card the fence,and finally the cogs.
