TAWS~ April Release Blog Hop

Good Morning 
Welcome to the April New Release Blog Hop
There are 3 super adorable new stamp sets being released this month
Life is Short
Wish Big
and you have the chance to win all 3...
(all the information on how to win is down at the bottom of my post or on TAWS blog)

You should be coming from the very talented
if not you will want to head on back to
The Alley Way Stamps Blog,
You don't want to miss any of these fun projects!!

For my project today I made a fun box card, perfect for a gift card
Hope you all like it~
Using the tutorial I found HERE, I was able to put this card together in no time.
Want to know what took the longest??? Picking out my pattern papers...LOL!
I used the new stamp set~ Wish Big 
I LOVE all the GREAT birthday sentiments and images...another MUST have for sure!
Here is a close-up of the sentiment, banner and balloons. I added some Trendy Twine in Lemon Tart, Holly Green and In the Navy
Popped the center balloon up for some dimension as well as the banner, running the twine behind the banner to hold it in place.

 The papers are from My Minds Eye~Playdate paper pack. Such GREAT primary colors and patterns!
I made a mat for the inside that has not be attached yet...I thought once I sent this out with a message on it, then I can add adhesive to it.
Here is the whole set....The front sentiment with those adorable balloons and banner are attached to a belly band that just slides right on the card to hold it all together.
So what do you think???
Isn't this a CUTE way to give a gift card?
