In the meadow...

** Have you checked out our December Blog Hop winners post** ;)

Here's my mid-week inspiration post for From The Heart Stamps.
I'm also using this weeks sketch w/a twist. Well, my interpretation of the sketch anyway...

The twist this time is to make a gift card holder.
Join in the challenge, and everyone who plays will receive a $1 discount code for the store, and if you are the challenge winner, you will receive a $5 discount code to the store! :)
Remember though, you must use an image by From The Heart Stamps to be eligible, and please include a pic of the sketch in your blog post too, it's in the rules!

Here's my card...

This fantastic, fun image is In The Meadow Snowmen, one of Faith's Project 100 Snowmen, where all images are just $1.00!

I coloured my image with promarkers, then sponged in the sky at the top.
I layered the image with foam pads around the bottom and 2 sides onto a striped piece which is by Stampin Up (bashful blue DSP) which was first backed onto white card, punched at the top with my eyelet border punch (also by SU), and wrapped with velvet ribbon and bow.
A gift card or money can be slid between the image and stripy piece.
Then this was all stuck to the base card & paper (from Bearly Mine Designs) with more foam pads.

I'm entering this card at:
