Paper Dolls Challenge #6

This week is Deena's turn to host the Paper Dolls Challenge. She's chosen a fun sketch for everyone to try. Hop on over to the Paper Dolls blog and check it out.

My nephew is really excited about graduating from Kindergarten. He's very smart and I'm so proud of him. I made this card for him (love you, Mero!).  I haven't decided what kind of gift card I'll be giving him, so I'm using a Toys R Us rewards card for my picture.

It's a one panel card. It's just the front. I made the pull-out so that one side will hold the gift card and the back is for your sentiment or message.

I really like the ovals from the new Background Basics: Geometrics stamp set. They're like polka dots, but with a twist. It wasn't easy finding four of the same buttons in the size that I needed. I rounded the ends of the top strips with a 1" circle punch. The buttons are threaded with DMC floss. I just started a list of the DMC floss that matches the PTI colors. These match pretty well, don't you think?

I'll be posting another card tomorrow using the same sketch. Go on over to the Paper Dolls blog and give Deena's challenge a try. It's a fun and practical sketch. You can never have enough gift card holders!
