Gift card holder

Hello my blogger friends, here I´m showing you what I made to inspire you for the POM Thursday challenge at The Outlawz this week (yes, this one is posted on time!). The challege is to make a gift card holder.
I started with a piece of red cardstock and I made a pocket with a triangle in one corner to slip the card. Took a piece of that pretty embossed white vellum paper and layered it with an embossed a tranpsarency sheet (loving my new cuttlebug!). I faux stitched around with a white gel pen and glued black sequins on the corners.
To make the embellishment I took a gold empty expresso coffe cup and crushed it, then I glued a red leather flower and finished it with another black sequin. I also wanted to add a bit of glitter to the gift card, but it didn´t work so well, you can see the right dress in it where I glittered some parts of it, but the glitter stuck to the whole card... so it was kind of messy... but it gave a nice touch anyway...
Hope you like this one and you can join us in the fun this week. And you have to see what the other girls did! you can not miss those great ideas!
Have a lovely day, thanks for looking.
