Sending A Smile

Good Morning all!
Not long till Christmas!!! Woo Hoo!!
Two weeks & we'll be there! 
I hope you're all well on the way to being organised!
So on to today's project!
It's time for a new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
We've decided it's time to have a little break from Christmas so for 
Challege #151 we want you to Send Someone A Smile
(But, No Christmas or Birthdays)

My Project this week is a gift voucher holder!
It will contain a voucher for a Spa Treatment! If that doesn't make someone smile.....
The image I have used is Penny Pamper from The Crafty Pad Designs,
just perfect for such an occasion.
For the base card I used a sheet of white A4 cardstock which I scored 
to make a DL sized holder.
I also scored two decorative lines along the front.
I added two panels of purple Core'dinations Cardstock

I coloured Penny with Promarkers & added some 
Glossy Accentsto the bubbles!
I matted onto some purple Core'dinations Cardstock then added
some lace trim!

I added a sentiment ticket, also from The Crafty Pad Designs
3 fab hand made flowers which were made by my lovely friend 
Lee, AKA Crafty Loops ( do check out her blog!)
I also added a triple bow & a pearl spray accent!

In this photo, I hope you can see the bottom section which will 
fold up to contain the gift voucher!
Thanks so much for looking! Don't forget to check out the projects by the 
other lovely& very talented DT members!
I hope you can find the time to join in at The Crafty Pad & 
Send Someone A Smile!
