Do you ever have those times that you just say “WOW”?

Yesterday was one of those days for me.  Our niece is graduating from Nursing School today and we got her a gift certificate.  Well I “had” to make a certificate holder to put it in.  It would not have been right to just hand it to her, especially when that is one of the things that I do (duh) is to make cards. LOL  When I got done with this project, I was amazed one how nice it came out.  This first picture is of the front of the holder.

This next picture is of the inside.

You know I had to do a close up of the flower on the front so you could get see more detail.

When I started on the holder I had no idea what it was going to look like or how it would come out.  I really have fun working on this project.

Okay, so I am sure you would like to know the supplies used.  Here goes…

Stamp Set:  Warmest Regards (retired)

Card Stock:  Chocolate Chip, Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper

Ink:  Encore! Gold

Accessories:  Pretties Kit flowers and Cream halfback Pearls, Accents & Elements flower, Purely Pomegranate Satin Ribbon and Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon.

If this has ever happened to you, that you wowed yourself, send me a picture with the recipe and I will post your “WOW” project.
