Happy Birthday Allison

Hi there

Today is my sister-in-laws birthday and here is the card and gift that I made for her.

First of all the card - the layout is cased from a card we made at team training earlier this month (I will try and blog it later this week).

I wanted to use my new set Flower Shop doing the same technique Jacque taught us but it didn't work out as well so modified it to the above.  I'm LOVING the new Simply Pressed Clay - I think you'll be seeing a few flowers and buttons :)

For the gift we combined with my parents to give Allison money to buy a ticket to see the musical 'Wicked'.  I couldn't just give her the money in an envelope so made this cool voucher holder using the Pop N Cuts die  I'd seen on Tanya Bell's. blog.  One layer of DSP isn't strong enough so I cut out two, stuck them together and here is the voucher.  No gift is complete without chocolate so I set to making a cute box another great find from Tanya's blog.  She has a great video tutorial for both of these
