For you

Well, I've been at it again this morning! I went to bed last night with all kinds of ideas running through my head for a way to wrap a gift card and use a tag... and I think my wallet (aka gift card holder) turned out pretty neat - it kind of has a vintage feel to it! It's done in kraft, red and brown, with an embossed dimensional flower mounted on a die-cut circle, faded background text watermark on brown cardstock, some very cool hemp ribbon/bow and a tag attached with a tiny ball chain! OMG! Too much fun! I also tried a new bleaching technique on this project I saw on a StampTV tutorial, which I really enjoyed!

I'm entering my "For you" wallet in the following challenges:
