5 years

Hello everyone!!! Happy Wednesday!!! I almost typed Tuesday. This weeks is going to go so fast. So much to do and not much time to do it.

Today I am sharing a project with you that I made for my niece. Time has gotten away from me again. I knew I had time to make a card but then I realized that I have no idea what to get her for her birthday. I was talking to my sister and she told that she sent our niece a gift card last time because she likes to shop. What girl doesn't, right?

Me being the kind of person I am I couldn't just throw the gift card in the birthday card so I went to work trying to decide how I was going to package it. That is when I remembered the latest Lauren's My Timeless Template; ready, set, wrap. What a great way to package a gift card for a girl who is turning 5. Plus, to me it looks like a little purse and what girl doesn't like purses?

I used Aqua Mist because my niece's favorite color is blue. I love the colors and how it turned out. Can you believe that all the cardstock is scraps? I finally went through my scrap box and get rid of a lot of pieces I would NEVER be able to use. It is so much nicer now and maybe I will use more of it now that I know it is in there :)

I got to snap a picture of the inside with the cork bottom but my camera batteries died right afterwards. Looks like I will be charging more batteries today.

stamps: PTI floral frenzy, polka dot basics
ink: Versamark and Archival Brilliance Moonlight White
paper: PTI jet black, aqua mist and I used cork for the bottom of the box
ribbon: Michael's twill white
buttons: grab back from Wal-Mart
linen thread from SU!, the flower I got from Michael's, The letter is actually chipboard I got a long time ago and it was inked with aqua mist ink and then covered with crystal stickles.

That is about it. I hope you enjoyed it.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
