Gift Card

Good morning all. Wasn't the weather lovely yesterday - a balmy 14/15 degrees here!

I found out last night that I'm definitely doing the stationery for the wedding next year so I'd best get my skates on and finish the first lot for this year ready to get started again!

I had a lovely lunch out yesterday for Mum's birthday and a good catch up with the rest of the family.  We all pooled together to pay for a holiday for her so I was requested to make something to give her, this is what I came up with:

Created in Craft Artist using "Dunes" from Daisy Trail. I don't use CA that often for card making but thought this kit was perfect for the job. After printing out I simply layered the image onto some dark blue card.

Challenges entered:
The Paper Girls - travel
Moving along with the Times - song or movie inspired (Summer Breeze)
