Unscripted Sketches #255 / Happy mothers day gift card

Saturday May 3, 2014
 
Unscripted Sketches #255  challenge, use the sketch below and make your card, scrapbook page or project and link to the Unscripted Sketch blog.
 
 
This is the card I made for the challenge. I decided to make a gift card - card. I had this envelope from ???? and I kept moving it around my desk and thought wow this would work out perfect for a gift card holder. I also found this negative part of a die and liked the look. I used clear embossing powder and embossed the leaves to give the background on the pink a designer look. I am loving how quick and easy this card was to make and things I found on my desk. Same with the twine it was just picking out from the pile of paper scraps I had on my desk. I don't have this size on a spool so not even sure where it came from either.. Any how this card probably took me under 10 min but looks like I took a lot of time to make.
