Bella Cartes Classiques Swap

I made this 5 x 7 card for the November Bellas Cartes Classiques swap and challenge.  I used a free image from Gecko Galz, paper is Crafty Secrets on the card. 
I love the envelope and liner made with Paper Pizzazz and  Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Envelopes and Liners SVG.  I asked Lindsay to make a pretty liner SVG and she made the liners and envelopes to match in 3 sizes, I am ecstatic, I just love these!  Thank you so much Lindsay!  The envelopes are not only beautiful ,they are really economical too!  I bought the paper 5 @.95 @Joanns, I make  5 x 7 cards so I get 1 envelope per sheet and 2 liners per sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and that is a lot less than I pay for plain white envelopes!  The SVG is only $3.00, a real bargain!  Thanks again Lindsay! 
I followed the sketch at Bellas Cartes Classiques, and I did a lot of fussy cutting on this card, which is why I added the close up!  The tree, hat and basket of apples have foam tape under the cuts.  The apple and mid air parcel are just cut and pasted.  I added some Marvy liquid snow marker to the snow in the pic.  The beautiful red ribbon with pearls and the pearl brad in the Poinsettia are from Pizzazz Aplenty.  Thank you for looking.  ~Diane  
I am entering this in the Make It Monday Challenge.  This is a great way to meet fellow bloggers, this group is wonderful!
