Special Gift Card

After I had seen a card like this at the stampman, I had to make one. I searched the web and found a tutorial here. I wanted to make a card anyway because I promised a friend to make a card for her niece... a girly one. I decided to use the lovely "Once Upon A Springtime" collection from Graphic 45, he he... about time because the papers were getting dusty on the shelf :)

I have to admit I am not a 'cute' and 'girly' style person, somehow I like this paper as it reminds me of Beatrix Potter. Pink is, just like red, not a colour I use very much... but... I have been challenging myself lately to step out of my comfort zone and to go for it!

Let me know what you think :)
