On Thursday afternoon my sister called me at work to tell me that my nephew would like me to make a gift card holder for him to bring to a birthday party and that (if I was willing) she would come by my office on Friday to pick it up. Normally, this is the sort of thing I love to do, but I was afraid to say yes because I had a meeting after work and I knew I wouldn't be home until after 9:00 pm and the chances of me being creative at that hour are pretty slim! But somehow I found myself saying yes! I was pretty sure that I had one already that would be perfect, but then she told me that he would be giving two gift cards! I don't have any kind of gift card holder that holds two! I managed to convince her that I needed more time and she agreed to pick it up at my house on Saturday. Whew! That was close!
So, I cleverly decided to use the FTL sketch challenge layout this week to make a birthday card/gift card combo. (The inside has spots to hold two gift cards).
ColorLab challenge was to use Rose Red, Blushing Bride, and Soft Suede. On Friday I came across the card I made for that challenge and rememberd how much I loved how the colors really made that card shine. So I used those colors again here.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
