hey everyone...
Pile it on has another great challenge for you this week
For or from a Father
we are sponsored by My heart pieces
here is my inspiration for you....
It is a match book card - plus it is the perfect size for a gift card
can you guess who will be getting this card next Sunday??
the card is made with CTMH products
paper pack - Later sk8r
tie is cut from the cricut artiste cartridge
Pocket - Rugged Dude 
some close ups of the card and its folds below
and the little card pulls out for a special note

some close ups of the tie, epoxy bubbles and embossed star

I am really happy with the way it turned out and I hope my dad likes it...
Also if you are coming to my class on monday night you will be making one as well :)
