Sassy Cheryl's Challenge --- Gift Card Holder for New Baby

I finally finished a card for Sassy Cheryl's challenge but have to get it posted very quickly!  Tomorrow will be a whole new challenge.  Well, that's tomorrow....... today I am posting this pillow box for the challenge "Gift Card Holder for New Baby." 

This image is called "Artificial Flower Girl" but I think she is just as real as can be and absolutely adorable.  I took a little different twist on the new baby theme, as you will see in a minute.  The dp is some hot pink stripes cardstock I've had for quite awhile. Same for the flowers and brad.  But the image is new and I colored her with bright pink Copics.

Here is the pillow box.  I know that templates are readily available, but I disassembled packaging that a pair of trouser socks came in. It was the perfect size for gift containers.  Never let a box go to waste!

On the inside was a liner in this shape, so I used it as a template, too, and did a computer-generated image of a gift card (actual size).  The sentiment (I made it up) is the different twist I was talking about for this "new baby" card.  In any case, it's a great little box for the gift card with room for a small item, too. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope your week is starting off well.  Be sure to hop over to Sassy Cheryl's to see the inspiring creations by the design team
