When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Peachy Keen DT Challenge #38 - Wrap it Up!

The challenge for Peachy Keen DT Challenge #38 - Wrap it Up!,  which will end on Oct 31st, is to create elements used in wrapping a gift. There are no limitations.  Peachy Keen Stamps were encourage to use.  Ideas for elements varies from tags to gift wrap to gift card holders to note cards.

I love Fall and the colors we see everywhere.  I've been doing some recycling lately and I wanted to incorporate at least a bit of those for this challenge.  I am hoping that the receiver of the gift will re-use the materials that I've used: burlap and silk flowers.  I also just got done posting my Peachy Keen Let's Face It Friday Challenge #3 entry and I still have leftover of assorted leaves that I used on my paper wreath.  I do not wish to put them to waste, so I added a bunch of those as embellishment to the gift card.  Fall, recycle, reuse equals another fun entry at Peachy Keen challenges.

This is a birthday gift for a craft friend.
I guess, using the burlap as a gift wrap wasn't such a bad idea...
This is the giftcard, which was embellished with leaves from my paper wreath project.  I  also incorporate a stamped and cut images from Flourishes "Sunflowers" set.   Then, I punched circles for center and stamped Peachy Keen Snow Cuties.  To add dimension, I added epoxy stickers on the Peachy Keen faces since I didn't use pop-dots on this project.  Also, I added sentiments from the same Flourishes set and added yellow/orange baker's twine. 
PAPER: Kraft paper, unknown cardstocks and DCWV
STAMP: Peachy Keen and Flourishes
INKPAD: Memento Black Tuxedo
EMBELLISH: Unbranded tag, baker's twine from The Twinery and epoxy stickers from K & Company
OTHERS: Burlap, hemp and silk flowers

Until next time!
