Thank You!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello my crafty friends!
Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a great week :)
 I have decided to take a break from posting something other than Halloween....even though I'm on a roll :) I promise, I will be back with more Fall/Halloween projects, lol!

Before I share this project, I will be leaving on vacation tomorrow and won't be back for about a  week. I will have some service and will try and pop in and out when I am able. I do have a few projects I am working on and will have scheduled to post while I am away :)
Have a great week!

So today, I have a quick little gift card holder to share with you that I made for a dear friend of mine. She was so sweet to me and I wanted to do something back in return. So of course, we all love to craft right?!?!  Well, now she can go shop for some fun crafty goodies in appreciation of what she did for me!
Thanks Rhonda!
I started with My Creative Time's Embossed Gift Card Holder metal die. The pretty double sided pattern paper is from Basic Grey. The sentiment along the side is stamped with the Fun Vertical Greetings stamp set.
The flowers were created using the Flower Petal metal die and the leaves tucked in are cut from the Stitched Leaves  metal die. 
I attached a fun polka dot button in the center from Recollections and a fun twine double bow using maraschino twine from the The Twinery.
I finished by adding a gift card from Michael's Craft Store :) I thought it turned out so cute, so I made an extra one. I am sure it will come in handy, right?
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky #41 Anything but a card
2.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #85 Anything Goes
3.) DL.ART Oct Linky Anything Goes
4.) Sweet Stamps Challenge #189 Dies
