DDC#23 Gift of Giving

Taking part in another challenge - this time a gift card holder, something I haven't made before. I used a Kaiser heavyweight paper from the Wish Upon range. I chalk inked the paper edges, added lace, and vintage flowers. I also stitched on all the pearl beads .... they continue all up the back too. I added a ribbon tie for closure and an irridescent butterfly.
I'll make these again... I enjoyed making something other than a card. The instructions are on the Double Dutch Challenge site - click on the logo link on the left to get there! It's challenge #23...
