Gift Bag Birthday Card

Hello ~ Happy Wednesday! Today is day 3 of my guest designing on Joy's blog and the My Creative Time Sneak Peeks! I hope you all have enjoyed this week so far! I am still having so much fun, and I hope you all are too! Let's get right to my card today!
Well today I will be showcasing the stamp set "It's All About You" . There is a coordinating die called "Stitched Mini Frame and Arrow" ( SOLD separately). Some other ladies on the design team will be showcasing some other stamps and dies. Just head on over to Emma's blog to see ALL the fabulous creations! I promise you are going to want this whole entire release ~ you are going to LOVE them!
For my card today I needed to make a card for someone special in my life, and there is this PERFECT sentiment on the "It's All About You" stamp set! This special person LOVES to shop, so I searched through my cartridges for a bag. I found this bag on 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. Now you are probably thinking, "What?  Where???" On page 39, there is this cute little ghost bird holding his little treat bag! I enlarged the image on the layer 1 button. This bag has jagged edges on the top but I knew that wasn't going to be an issue because I wanted to add some boa! Now, my sentiment is heat embossed on a scrap piece of paper that came from the "Stitched Postage Frame Die" . My balloons were created with the dies from the "Warm Holiday Fun" stamp set. I added some twine, and this card was complete! Something quick and simple, right??

Materials Used:

Circut Cartridge ~ 3 Birds on Parade ~ gift bag ( cut @ 13.75)
My Creative Time ~ "It's All About You" ~ sentiment
My Creative Time ~ "Stitched Postage Frame Die" ~ paper that comes from the center 
My Creative Time ~ "Warm Holiday Fun" ~ dies for my balloons
Paper ~ Paper Trey Ink, Simple Stories and Paper Company
Twinery Twine
Ink ~ Archival
