Nutcracker Gift Card

I took some time out of my creative room move this morning to do a few
fun challenges...
I have to say though, that I LOVE my room moved to where it is now.
I have my computer right before me....so much better....
the only downside is the crazy cats!  Now that this room has carpet in it
they like to hang out with me...a lot!!
That's okay, but they get into everything!!
 
 
For today I made this cute little nutcracker card, that will hold a gift card
in it's envelope...these little envelopes are from Webster's Pages new line
"a Christmas story"....as well are the papers and the little button I tied on...
The rosette was made with the TH mini rosette die from a SU scrap piece of DP
 
 
I am entering this into the challenge at "The Kraft Journal" to use any sketch
 
 
which brings me to the challenge at "Seize The Sketch #8"....a perfect fit for my card!!
 
I hope you all had a good week, mine was productive in the sense
 that I got more things moved into my room, the hubs got one of my two lights hung,
and he took my paper stacker apart and rebuilt it for me, I got all my November
design work done and submitted for Classy Cards 'n Such (whew... a relief) and they turned out wonderful (pat on the back), talked to Dar of Dar's Crafty Creations on the phone....
yep, it has been a pretty good week...
see you later...off to Home Depot!! (I'll show you what for later)!

You did a great job following the sketch, Diane. I love the sweet little glassine bag you've used on your card. Thanks SO much for sharing with us this week, and please be sure to stop by again each Monday for a brand new challenge. We look forward to seeing what else you will create to share with us.
Blessings,

Love the idea of using this cute envelope for a gift card holder. How fun! Works great with the sketch, too. Maybe your kitty companions will settle down once they've thoroughly explored the new room. Marvin used to hang out under my stamp table. The dogs figured out they're too big to be in there with me, but I would love their company.
