A Gift For You..../DS#105

Good morning my lovelies! I hope your week is treating you well so far. It's going to be another hot and humid day here in my neck of the woods. I have a card I want to share with you, one I made while on vacay. I based this on Deconstructed Sketch #105, but since I was having technical problems with the wifi, I wasn't able to enter it. Grrrr! Oh well, I still want to share! Here it is:

A simple inside:

Here is the sketch I based this on:

Since I didn't take my Grand Calibur with me on vacation, I took some pre cut die cuts with me. One of them was this super adorable shopping cart from Paper Smooches. I swapped that out for the circle element in the sketch. I stamped a bunch of items that you would put in a shopping cart if at a department store: purses, shoes, a present with a big bow on it! I stamped and fussy cut all the items, then adhered them inside, on and around the cart. I LOVE how this turned out! On the inside, I stamped thanks, but I may add a little pocket to hold a gift card for the lucky gal who receives this.

I have one more card to post about, but that's for later I think. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!

  1. Great take on the sketch. super cute die-cut shopping cart. your card is adorable. So many times I get a sketch done, or a challenge and I miss it by a day, once I missed by just a few minutes. Dial up is terrible to try to post things.

  2. You didn't bring your Grand Calibur? WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??
    I love how packed that cart is- I am terrible for leaving my purse in the cart and walking away from it. At least on this one it would blend in!

  3. What a cute card. I love that shopping cart!!

  4. That little shopping cart is so adorable! Love all the stamped goodies you added to it. Would be so perfect for holding a gift card on the inside!

  5. fabulous take on the sketch! i love the purse dangling from the cart's handle!! awesome card!
