I just had to use it ...

... as soon as I saw an M & S gift card that John had received for his birthday, I just had to demolish the card that it came in and recycle it on to a card with a Guy's Life earthtones vellum that I've had for years and never used. I've also used some brads that have been hoarded for years. I've covered up the M & S wording on the pocket of the shirt with the birthday greeting. I'm so impressed that this gift card even has real buttons on it - what crafter could resist using this? Not me!

This is for:

The squirrel and the fox 34: party time - celebrations
Perfect sentiments 60: metal embellished birthdays (metal brads)
Artistic inspiration 21: celebrations/anything goes
Whoopsi Daisy: celebrate
Emerald faerie garden 39: celebrations
Party time Tuesday 101: celebrate
Creative inspirations 195: celebration
Dutch dare 97: celebration
