Happy Day Gift Card Holder

Certainly a day of celebration with Color Throwdown’s 5 year anniversary!  Some help with a sketch from Mojo, and because it’s got a mini pin, what the hey – Simon Says Stamp!


Here’s my take:


Did I EVER futz with this card.  Playing around with the exact layout took forever but I am so pleased with the results.  I knew immediately I wanted to use these Thickers letters, so I matched some papers to them to get the card going.  The little mini bag really puts the FUN in functionality, a perfect size for a gift card with a touch of support from the mini clothespin, colored to match with copics.

I think cupcakes have been the en vogue treat for some years now – when will the humble popsicle get a chance!?  I put one on here and he is happy as can be hanging out on this bright card.  Speaking of bright, this photo here is how I have been taking my photos lately (in the shade but on a sunny day).  I wanted to mess around and see what it would like in direct sun:


Sorry, should have warned you to grab a pair of shades first!  Don’t you LOVE how the glitter letters have caught the light!  Happy day indeed!!
