Blackleaf Studios - gift card holder

Here is another gift card holder I made - using a silhouette image from Blackleaf Studios. Nothing fancy, just used some scraps and rhinestones. The actual gift card holder is a die cut from Taylored Expressions.

And, now, here is my creation:

I used Real Red CS and ran a white piece through my CB with the D'vine swirls folder. I used an image from Di's Digi Downloads, added some ribbon and a cute sentiment. I am finding my cards lately are very simple because I am tending to send a lot of them to Australia to my sister and her family. So, they need to be fairly thin and light. The colouring on this one is still crappy, and I figured out why! Tim was messing around with the settings on the camera, so I think the next pics will all be better!!! MEN!!!

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you have fun on Glenda's hop!! Good luck with the blog candy!!!

I used Cheeky Bear and put some flowers in his paws! The sentiment is from a TAC set I've had for AGES!!!! Nothing fancy about this card, as I wanted to showcase the cute bear!!!

Have a great week!
