Scalloped Pocket Card and a Giveaway!!!

***Now Closed! Will be back later with my winner!!***
Hi Everyone! Well, it's that time again! Time for another giveaway!! But first I just want to show you a fun pocket card that you can make! And it only takes minutes to do! Today's fun Ways to Use it challenge over at SCS is to use white cardstock only. So I made this fun Scalloped Pocket card by first taking a piece of round scalloped DP and tracing just the top half onto a piece of white CS, trim it out and fold to make the pocket. Then just cut another piece of paper to put inside the pocket! These are alot of fun because you can also put a gift card inside of it along with the card!

After I made my pocket I just ran the closed pocket through my Cuttlebug with my all time fave Emb Folder, Swiss Dots. I then dressed it up with some pretty ribbon, pearl stick pin and a stamped Rubber Cafe butterfly. The card itself has a Studio G stamp(many thanks), a Prima Stamp(pink dots) and a Melissa Frances Rub-On as well as another butterfly. I hope you like it!

Now onto the Giveaway! Let's see I have alot of little fun things to give away this time!

~ Basic Grey 6x6 Lime Rickey Paper Pad
~ EK Success Scalloped Edge Punch- Medium
~ American Crafts Circle Calendar Stamp 2x2
and
~ A Crop-A-Dile II Big Bite!!

All you have to do is leave a comment here at this post and a link to my giveaway on your blog! Don't have a blog? That's ok, just tell me how you will spread the word about my giveaway!(I trust you! *wink*) And if you would like 2 chances, become my friend(follower)! You know the drill!! You have until next Thursday, April 30th! I will pick my winner at 3 pm and announce it sometime that night! And you know me, I will probably add more to this before it is all done!! So Good Luck!!

Have a wonderful day!! :)

***Now Closed! Will be back later with my winner!***

Hugs,
