Lauren's Saturday Template Challenge

Here's a little sneak peek at what the team has in store for this week!

It's time again for Lauren's challenge of the week. This week the challenge was to use one of her templates that are for sale at PTI and create something with the color purple or use butterflies. At first I thought we were supposed to do both, but I got that figured out and I went with the color purple. It's been an interesting week so trying to get this accomplished was a bit of a task, but I did it! Here is what I came up with. I added a couple decks of cards and a notepad to keep score. I had intentions of putting some card game instructions, but that part just didn't happen. I took apart the card box and used that to cut a template to stamp. I really like how this part turned out! Hope you enjoy my creation. Be sure to stop by the gals on the team and see what they came up with.

Alicia this is rockin awesome! I love this and you have just given me the PERFECT gift idea for a special friend! I don't suppose you haev the dimensions we need for the card box? I collect playing cards from everywhere I travel but most all come in plastic boxes. If you have them please email me the dimensions - I would LOVE to make something just like this. Great idea for the challenge.
