Bee Crafty #43 - We're Hiding Something

Good Morning!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far.  It's a little quiet around here.  My kids were off in different directions but it's time to go gather them up.  Saturdays are always so busy around here.

Anyway, we have a great challenge for you over at Bee Crafty.  We're hiding something.  LOL  The challenge is create a card or project with a hidden element.  Here's my take on the challenge...

My card is featuring the Bee Crafty digi image called Little Lady Skipping and she is just adorable with her flower covered jump rope!  I went with a pretty easy design.  I did try to embellish it a bit, but no matter what I tried, it simply looked like I was hiding mistakes and that was not part of the challenge.

I made an envelope to go behind the focal image from a 6 x 4 1/2 inch piece of decorative paper to pop up the image.  The envelope is the perfect size for a gift card.  Just pull on the ribbons and the card slides right out.  This is great for gift giving since it's a gift card holder and card all in one.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum (SU!)
Paper:  Unknown (Queen's Ink)
Copics:  C10, B63, E00, E02, E29, E57, V91, V93, V95, Y06, Y11, YG63, YG67, YR16, YR23
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Textile embossing folder, corner rounder (CM), slot punch (SU), Scor-Pal
Embellishments:  Plum satin ribbon (Offray)

I hope you like my card and that it inspires you for easy gift giving.  Please join us for this fortnight's challenge, head on over to Bee Crafty to find out how to play along.  Enjoy your Saturday!!

You are so very clever, Melissa! I almost didn't see the pocket on your card. What a fun way to package a gift card, and your card is just so sweet. Love the colors you used and the pretty, feminine feel of it. Hugs, Deedee

This is gorgeous Mel! So love the colours that you used here. Purple seems to be a colour that is popping up everywhere these days. And you sure have made it shine in this project. Hugs.
