"Just For You" Christmas Gift Card holder

Today's challenge at Cardz TV was to make a Christmas gift card holder!
I have to admit, this was NOT my original submission, however, I committed the ultimate crafting sin and put a bottle of water on my craft table with the top loose and before I knew it I must've knocked it over! I didn't even realize it at first until I felt water running down onto my legs that was coming from underneath my laptop!!! I was devastated because not only was my project laying on the table, but many other things that I have been working on "perfecting" and now I am going to have to start all over again.  What bothers me the most was that my niece's drawings were sitting in a pool of water and she made them for me when I moved out of state so I would always think of her! :( I couldn't even try to dry them out because the ink ran and the picture look like one big muddy puddle! :( Well I guess there's no use crying over spilled water sooooo...onto bigger and better things!
This gift card holder was made with a stamp I dug out of my archives by Sunday International called Anthony and Burt 3 (ABFSO3). I colored it with Copics and Wink of Stella then applied Glossy Accents to the frog and bee's eyes. The background paper is from last year's SU! Designer Series paper line called Season of Style. I used the Pull Strip die from Technique Tuesday to hide the gift card! I love this die because it is a unique way for someone to open their gift card....just pull the tab! :) And last but NEVER least, my sentiment is from the Cardz TV stamp set called "Christmas Critter Captions"! This set is absolutely adorable and is so fun to use!!!
