365 Cards - #167 - "Gift" Card

The challenge today over at 365 Cards was to create a "gift" card. So the idea was to turn your card into a gift, and make it look like a beautifully wrapped present. I chose SU Pink Pirohuette and Whisper White cardstock. The gift tag is a chipboard tag covered with SU designer paper and stamped on. The white cardstock was half embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. The pink glitter flowers are from The Sticker Cafe and of course the ribbon is from SU. I thought the spash of SU Certainly Celery on the gift tag was just enough to break all the pink and white but is it too much of a break? I really don't know but I don't think it works. I have had the pink glitter flowers for nearly two years now and I got them from my Mum as part of my scrapbooking Christmas present but have never had cause to use them until now and they came in very handy.

The stamp set is from that same set that I used on my card recipe this morning, so even that is getting a good workout lol. Okay that is it I am off to bed now.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Beautiful! I think the green counteracts the white and pink perfectly. It's not a BAM bright green so it works well, IMO! Great job!!
