A Sweet Treat

I had to put this "card" in its own post because of all the extras that I
posted along with it for the Cuttlebug Birthday Palooza. It is actually a
gift box that I made and decorated like a card. It opens up....

and inside is a gingerbread cookie- a sweet "Thank you" treat! I was
so afraid I would run out of my DP "Red Holly" by Paper Pizazz,
that I was hoarding each scrap like it was gold! LOL! I bought it at
Hobby Lobby at the beginning of the summer. It was in a markdown
display at the front of the store for ten cents a sheet. I bought three
sheets and packed them away with the rest of my stash. Then I ran
across the Cuttlebug Birthday Palooza and I decided that I wanted to
enter. There were five projects. I finished the last project today, and
I still have almost one-half sheet of Red Holly left! Yay! This project
also fits Pile It On- three dimensional and Cupcake Craft- "Thanks
a Bunch" and ABC- "E is for Embossing."
CS is The Paper Studio and Archiver's. Stamp is Imaginese and
sentiment is by Autumn Leaves. Border is MS.  I used a Swirls and
Dotted Swiss folder by Provo Craft to emboss. Rhinestones are Hero
Arts and ribbon is Hobby Lobby.
