Gift Card Holder

I used some of papers from my past Swirlydoos kits.  To see some of their paper kits just hit my Swirly Savage Button in the left side bar.
This is for the Fancy Folds Week at 365 Cards Challenge Blog.
The challenges there this past week have been Fabulous!  I have created many New Types of Cards!  Nothing better than learning something new!
I distressed all the pieces of this gift card holder with my Distrez all tool.  All edges were inked with Fired Brick by Ranger.  I used some scallop scissors to create the center "For You" piece.  I have been working with my scraps...trying to use all my paper  :-)
I used Liquid Pearls in Bisque to add some bling to my card...and as soon as it is dry...I will get some photos of the inside.  
The Cute Red bird is of course an image from 
Here is the original image.
I just love it!  I used my Silhouette SD's print and cut feature to cut out this bird.  It makes a great little die cut for my projects!
Here is the inside of the gift card holder.
See that pretty rose in the upper right?  I painted that rose :-)
in GIMP.  My first time painting with a computer program.  Not as messy as my  The gift card slides right behind the blue punched piece.
Thanks for the visit!
