Vintage Hats, Shoes and Purses Week 50 Sugar Creek Hollow

Hello Friends!!
Happy Saturday!!
It is week 50 at Sugar Creek Hollow, and our theme this week is "Vintage hats, shoes and purses," we would like to see you use one or more of these items in your vintage or shabby chic style creations.   Before I forget, we have a guest designer, Brenda, and I would love it if you popped on over to her blog and left her some love!  As always the rest of the DT has some fabulous inspiration, so pop on over and visit them as well.
Here is my creation.
I used the Gecko Galz Bits and Pieces collage sheets to create these gift card holders.  I got the idea from my girlfriend Sandi.  She has this wonderful idea of a challenge that we will all benefit from called Christmas in the Bank.  This month, she showed how to make some easy Christmas gift card holders (you can get the measurements and "how to" on her blog).  I loved them so much, I decided to create some Vintage Shoe Birthday Gift card holders (you never know when you may need a fabby gift card holder).
 I created the background papers and "Happy Birthday" sentiments in GIMP.  They were printed and cut out, and inked with Ranger's Vintage Photo.  Then I embellished them with some ribbon and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I used the pink crochet lace, Juliet lace, moss green leaves, pink diagonal ribbon  to give a great vintage feel to this gift card holder.  The Vintage shoe on this one is my favorite!  I used the Candi foam fix it pads to elevate the sentiment, so I could tuck the ribbon under to tie the piece closed.
On this one, I used the Champagne organza, gold pom pom trim, another pink crochet lace as well as the moss green leaves and Juliet lace.  I even added a tiny button from the Latte collection and some cotton candy baker's twine.
I hope you enjoyed my creations!!
I can't wait to see what you link up to

I will be sharing with
