Hi everyone sorry about the photo the weather here in the south west has been horrible! Anyway this little giftcard holder is being entered into

I have used the LOTV stamp ''computer fun'' for this project to go with the masculine theme, With dsp from authentique blissful collection, buttons and my sentiment is so old i don't know where i got it! LOL.
 I will be putting a itunes card in this for my nephew who turn's 21 this year, we were on the phone and he reminded me of when he had a N64 consolle and he was playing james bond, couldn't get  him off it for love nor money LOL. So this stamp came to mind and it was perfect!

A CUTE LITTLE PILLOW BOX!

Here is a cute pillow box I made using a new CC DESIGNS stamp called ''lucy''. I got the pillowbox template from daisytrail, printed it off and put it together, it has a pre labelled tag about marriage so I covered it with a spellbinders ''fancy tag 3'' in pink cardstock,I used a mft ''small rolled rose'' die to cut pink felt to make the flower and butterfly.I then coloured lucy in and paper pieced her dress using Echo park ''springtime'' dsp.In her hair are the 2 little hearts that her waste from the tag die covered in glitter. Well that's it for today thanks for poppin by
