Gift Card Holder

Good Wednesday morning and Happy Thanksgiving Eve! I've got lots of cleaning and prepping to do today for the family feast tomorrow. Part of that includes cleaning my craft room but not before I post this little gift card holder that I made that just happens to meet the color requirements for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week.
I'm also entering this into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge and the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge because "anything goes"!
Karen Letchworth clued me in to the challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so I'm linking this up to their challenge as well. Thanks Karen! You've been so kind!

Here's my project:

I used a spellbinders die and embossed it with clear embossing powder, using PTI's Background Basics Tin Types, scored the two sides to make it fold in and then embellished it with PTI's Candy Cane Christmas. I added some Martha Stewart glitter to the candy canes to sugar them up a bit! The little tag is Stitched Tag Die Stacks from MFT and tied off with a scrap of white polka dot sheer ribbon.
My wish for you all is to have abundant joy and love this Thanksgiving. Thanks for visiting. Blessings~ Birgit
