Fun with Challenges

HI All!

Hope you had a great Tuesday. I had a friend over today, so moms got to chat and kids got to play! It's was very fun for everyone! Now the kids are resting and all is quiet so I thought I'd share the creation I made yesterday.

This is something new for me, usually I make cards, but I found this Gift Card Holder challenge at Double Dutch and thought, let's give that a try! It also qualifies for a few other challenges too. Some are new challenges for me that I found yesterday while blog hopping.

There was a simple and easy tutorial on the Double Dutch site and I used that for the base of my holder. I used Stampin' Up! cardstock in Melon Mambo and Chocolate Chip and paired that with some BasicGrey Lemonade papers. These colors fit the Cupcake Craft challenge of pink, green, and brown. Cupcake also wanted to see animals and flowers on your card, so I added a butterfly and a Prima flower, hope that works.

I used 2 papers, 1 ribbon, hardware (the jumbo grommet) and 3 buttons to fit the challenges at Stamp with Us and Saturday Challenge. You have to see the inside and outside of the holder to see all those challenge elements.

I have plans to pair this little holder with another fun idea that I saw recently, just haven't had the chance to put it all together. Will share that when it's finished though.

Have a great night, happy stamping! :)
