Relentless femininity

Here is my ATC #1 for the Feminine collection - along with the pretty envelope. I often make these envelopes to keep the ATC's in but this is the first time I have decorated one. The ATC is made using a brown card blank which was blotted with a gold 'pretty colour' ink pad. A heeled sandal die-cut that I received with an ATC was used as the main image (using spray glue) and then red sequins added. Red and brown (with hints of greens and pinks) are the main colours in our bedroom.
The envelope is a basic ATC shape with the corners rounded and little finger holes added at the top to enable the ATC to be easily removed, and little tabs to hold it closed. To decorate I added a 3D brown dress, a red butterfly sticker and red corner stickers to the bottom corners.

I also finished listening to audio book 'Relentless' by Simon Kernick - another crime novel. This is about a man who hears his friend die after uttering his address, and how his life changes in the following 24-48 hours. I really enjoyed the way the story jumps between perspectives to increase the tension, and also keep you a little mad at the main character for 'being dumb' lol. The story progresses at a good pace and you are never left wishing it would get to the point. It does finish on a bit of a cliff-hanger, but in this case I think it works well as it ensures the drama remains until the end. However, being a clipper audio book it does have random repetitions (in this case it is just the blurb off the back so is not an issue really).

Finally, an update on my birth sampler @ 24.5 hours.

Thank you
