EBTKS Challenge #6

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge! This month I am your hostess with the mostest...and I challenge you to use wrapping paper in your creation! As always, feel free to get creative--you can go beyond gift wrap and use bags, bows, tissue paper, etc. on your projects!

And, as hostess, I'm offering up a $25 gift certificate to Verve Stamps to our winner!


For my card, I used this gorgeous damask gift wrap for my background, then used the solid side of the roll to create my butterfly. I used CPS62 for my layout.

We'd love to have you play along with us! You have until midnight CST on Jan. 8 to submit your project on the EBTKS blog. I can't wait to see what you create!

Paper: Cool Caribbean, Chocolate Chip, Innisbrook gift wrap
Accessories: Nestabilities butterflies, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, SU ribbon, Kaisercraft pearl
