Gina K Designs CSS Treaure Chest Blog Hop

Hi, welcome to the Gina K Designs CSS Hop! You should be coming from the beginning!  Today Carolina has in her treasure chest challenge to make a holiday or New Year's Eve gift holder.  I made a post-it holder for those New Year resolutions :).  I used this tutorial over at SCS. Meanwhile, here is my finished result:



I used the butterfly from Dogwood and Butterfly and the sentiment from Bold & Beautiful.  I used the gorgeous GKD Blue Raspberry cardstock and some GKD White Luxury cardstock.  A Martha Stewart punch, and Spellbinders circles and lacy circles.

Now, pop oon over to TERA's BLOG - and have fun with tonight's hop!  I know we did.  Remember to comment - there will be a winner of a grab bag filled with Gina K Designs stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by~
