Gift Card for a photography session...

I wanted to take a few minutes to post a card I made for a friend. She is a photographer (BEAUTIFUL work by the way! Here is her website if you want to check out her work: and wanted a card to hold a gift certificate for a free photography session with her to put on a giving tree. So...I pulled out one of my favorite Unity Stamp sets, and made this for her:

I used a frame cut that was leftover from another project and never got used, as well as some scraps of October Afternoon paper from some previous projects. The stamped image is from Unity Stamps, and the sentiment, which is just on a hand cut banner, is from Pink By Design.

I inked the edges of everything with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen, then added some Crinkle Ribbon to make a bow, as well as some PTI twine to tie the tag on.

I am entering this is several different challenges! The first is the Cuttlebug Spot - to use leftovers - which I did. Next is at My Craft Spot: Treat Packaging (I think a gift of a photography session is a GREAT treat!). The next one is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge: Gift theme - and this is a holder for a gift. And finally, there is the Wacky Wednesday Challenge over at More than Favors - Christmas Theme.

Thanks for visiting today! I hope and pray that you are having a restful and blessed Sunday!!!
