CCMC469 Pocketful of Sunshine Giftcard

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at
This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:
It's called a colour CHALLENGE for a reason, right?!  For some reason, this colour combo gave me serious grief. I just couldn't get the balance right. In the end, I got sick of trying different things, and I had hundreds of stamped and rejected pieces on my desk, so I just put some together and went with it. Does that ever happen to you?
  • The background is the Pinewood Plank Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This folder is extra thick and gives a deeply etched impression. I 'swiped' my White inkpad over the raised design to make it really 'pop'
  • I've used patterned paper from the Naturally Eclectic pack for the pocket and strip across the back. I love the 'faded denim' look of the pocket
  • The whitewashed looking piece is from the Wood Textures 6"x6" Paper Stack
  • This card doubles as a gift card holder, and the visa gift card slips into the pocket. It stuck out a little further than I liked, so I actually made it slide behind the whitewashed piece, and stuck the pocket over the top.
  • There's lots of fun elements in the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set, so you can give your pocket a custom-made look with stitching, tabs and decorations
  • The Powder Pink Finely Woven ribbon was the perfect girly touch for my pocket. It ties so beautifully!
I hope you like my card. Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!
