Challenge #30 at CTO

Good morning everyone! It's time for another challenge at CTO! Today's challenge is to make a tall card, anything birthday, but it must have a present. Now if you're not familiar with a tall card, the card fits in a regular business size envelope. I usually cut the paper at 9" x 7 1/2", scored at 3 3/4". I don't make them very often and I really don't know why, they can be a really cute card and I always have that size envelope on hand. So for my card I used all Recollection paper except for the present, which was from Bazzill Swiss Dot paper. Even the pattern paper was from a new Recollection pad I got at Michael's. The ribbon and gems are from Michael's too and the sentiment stamp is from the set I won at My Craft Spot a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't pass up using Stickles on the ribbon part of the present.

I really hope you decide to join the fun this week, and be sure to stop by the other Design Team members to see what they created. They are a super talented bunch. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
