Back to the Installation Dinner

OMG, am I delinquent on posting or what? The Installation Dinner was 3 weeks ago and I got distracted with other fun things to post. Okie dokie, at our dinner we each had to bring a $10.00 grab bag. Of course I wanted to do something with "paper" and made this card using my Sizzix "Card A2 Flap" die. Gotta say, it's one of my fave dies because it's so easy peasy. The girls names were all placed in a bowl and we each had to pull a name then pick a prize for that person. Karen H. got this card and I was really happy she liked it. Yay!!!

On the front, I applied some flowers by Prima over the flourish from the Sizzing "Decorative Swirl Set." Then blinged it us with some pearls and rhinestones by Kaiser Crafts. The "friend" stamp is by Stampin' Up. Other supplies on the front of the card: DP by K & Co., brads, and scallop punch by Friskars.

Here's a peek inside. Using the pocket die by Sizzix, and wanting to brighten it up, I made a bouquet of flowers using my vase punch by Marvey, tiny flower punch by EK, leaf punch by EK, and a flower sticker by Sticko. Since I didn't have a "Just For You" stamp, I printed it on the computer. Thank goodness for computers at times like this. Then inserted a Walmart gift card.

Another shot with the gift card along side.

Alrighty, hope you all have a fab weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
