365 Cards Day 43 Challenge

So as I was surfing the web a few days ago (because I had soooo much extra time on my hands....) and came across this fantastic blog called 365 Cards.  I absolutely love making cards for challenges because to be completely honest, I just don't have the creativity to sit down and come up with my own sketches, color combos etc etc. The most awesomest (not a word I know but it sounds cool) part of the blog is that there's a new challenge EVERY SINGLE DAY!! If it was new years when I discovered this blog, my resolution would be to take part in every single challenge. But alas, it's April and it's not resolution time =) 

So today's challenge was to make a gift card holder. How perfect is that?? I was going to make them at my open house a few weekends ago but decided against it in the end so I whipped up this one for the challenge. I know the stamping isn't the greatest but it's Easter Sunday.... So lets all forget about the nitty gritty-ness of cardmaking and as the card says, "Enjoy"! The template I used can be found HERE.  Now I know the tutorial uses the Scor-pal rather than a Scor-it but I don't have a Scor-it and the more I read about a Scor-it the more I want one. I really do find it troublesome to have the premeasured score lines on the Scor-Pal. If the Scor-it is as easy to use as the Scor-pal but yet allows me to score at whatever intervals I want, I'm SOLD. Hopefully the random number pulls me out of the hat!! 
Happy Easter everyone!

Sandy, first of all, your comments about 365 Cards warms my heart - that is just the kind of enthusiasm I hoped this blog would produce. Secondly - your card is stunning, and the recipient will no doubt "enjoy" it ;)
