Congratulations!......{PK Challenge Card}

Hi Everyone!!
Hope you are all having a GREAT weekend so far!

It is time again to play along in this week's Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge! I LOVE entering all their challenges and was honored to be chosen as the Top Peach for last weeks 3D Project! 
So for this week the challenge is...
Create a card (must be a card), and in doing so make it a gift card holder, or include a money slot.

And here is the card/gift card holder I made...Hope you like it!
I have played with this card design before (here is the other card I made using this file)....a fun Halloween file I picked up in the Silhouette store that I altered to make into a baby card. I have yet to use the May SOTM set from Peachy Keen Stamps so what better time to pull them out... Anyways I used Cameo to alter the file so I could weld the word "BABY" to the pull out gift card holder/card. After making all the necessary adjustments I wanted for the file, I cut all the pieces out and began to assemble my card.
Here is what the inside of the card looks like. There is a slot to hold a gift card (sorry I didn't have anything baby related to add to demo so an old Walgreens card had to do the trick) There is also room on both the front, under the gift card to write a message as well as a nice big place on the back.
I used the adorable piggy baby from the May SOTM set, stamped it on my cardstock and then added some copic marker to his ears and belly, paper pieces his feet and added more copic color for some added dimension and for his face added some white gel pen freckles above his cute chalked cheeks. I couldn't leave my baby piggy without his diaper, so using the same stamp set, I stamped the image on white cardstock, cut it out and added some extra copic colors.
Finally the sentiment is also from the May SOTM set and I used one of the new My Creative Time stamp sets~ Tab Notes for the banner. It was a perfect size for my sentiment! Just LOVE when that happens :)

Supplies Used:
Paper~ Kraft (The Kraft Outlet), White and Bazzill Pink
True Friends~ Carta Bella (Annie's Paper Boutique)
My Creative Time~Tab Notes
Cuts/Dies~ 3 piece Halloween card~ Lori Whitlock (Altered to remove bat)
"Baby"~ Letter used and welded to card base
Extra~ Copic Markers, White gel pen, chalk, pop dots

So what do you think??? I don't know of anyone having a baby right now, but I am sure this will come in handy in the near future!
Well that is all I have for tonight. Thanks so very much for stopping by and have a GREAT night!!
