CAS-ual Fridays

Just a quick post tonight with a little something I created for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge #30. This time it's a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge.



I chose the top row across, using scallops, polka dots and pink.

It's a little envelope, with a pocket inside, that I created by cutting, punching and stamping. It was really fun to make!



The cute, bright pink, polka dot paper is from Jillibean Soup. I used a small scallop punch from EK Success. A couple of clear buttons and some pink string help keep it closed. The stamped butterflies and sentiment are from Hero Arts.


Here's another photo showing how it unfolds and opens.




And this is the inside, stamped with the Flower Dot Pattern, also from Hero Arts. The pocket easily holds a gift card or money.



Thanks so much for taking time to visit me! Have a good rest of the week! :)
