Crafty Secrets Challenge

DSCF7566

Ahhh, back to my own computer!  Like being at home in your own bed!  Today’s little project is for the Crafty Secrets Challenge over at Papercraft Planet.  If you’re not a member, sign up and join the CS group so you can play along!  Diane is our hostess and has challenged us to make a gift card holder.  I recycled an Altoids mint box which was a nice green color, and just the right size for a gift card, and attached a Heartwarming Vintage image from the Seasonal booklet, trimming and shading it a bit:

I stamped a little tag with a sentiment and floral image from the CS Home Sweet Home set and colored it with some markers and added a gold line with my Zig Painty.  Lace on the side, bling in the corners and a sweet little yellow ribbon finished it off:

This was also supposed to be for the JUGS challenge, which was to use pink, lavender, green and yellow…..but for a birthday card!!  Oops!  Do you think they’ll accept a birthday gift card holder????  I am going to try anyway!!!  Well, thanks for visiting today!

It is a blustery, chilly day today, perfect to stay inside and stamp!! I hope you get some time to create today wherever you are!
