Edwin and My 1st Envelope Card - DT for I ♥ Promarkers

Good morning to all in blogland, well i got my antibiotics so hopefully this darned ear infection will be gone and i can wear my hearing aid again!!
We have a new challenge at I ♥ Promarkers!!  
I thought i would attempt to make an envelope card as they always look so elegant so i hope i've pulled the elegant look off!!

DPs - Marianne Designs Songbook paper bloc

If anyone is wondering what template i used well i didn't use one,
i measured 18ins across and then scored at 6in intervals and 6ins in height.
I distressed all the edges of the card and dies with Tim Holtz  Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I find it a beautiful card, but unfortunately you have not read the conditions. It should be a winter card. And you have made ​​a Christmas card.
Hopefully you still have time to participate and a winter map.
Unfortunately this card can not join the challenge at DMCC
