HMFMC #247 - Anythng But A Card

A new Challenge #247 begins today at the

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

Our Hostess for this challenge is our talented go-to Teammate 

And she has chosen the Theme

 Anything BUT a Card 
You are always welcome to use an Anything Goes theme.

My project is a birthday card and gift tag holder.

It holds about 10 cards and envelopes
and about 12 tags, but I made 8 of each.

Cards were made from pre-colored images from the Joanna Sheen
Triple House Mouse Designs CD

I made the tags from stamped images that I colored with Copics.
I found this idea on youtube here is the link
