Outlines Monday Challenge-Inspiration picture

Welcome to this week's Outlines Monday Challenge! This week we are using an inspiration photo (you can see below).

Yep, call me a cheater...not any yellow...or even the right green colors LOL...I thought I had this challenge made...Abby's wedding is in just a few days and her colors are green and yellow! You would think I had it made anyway.  As we crafted away, the colors have slowly changed to a darker rich green and black, with no yellow! And cheater that I am, everything I am making these last few weeks must be wedding related so I can find time to sleep too LOL!  I made this great little gift card holder using a cut svg file from Creations by AR. I "purtied" it up with this perfect Outlines wedding sentiment and  a left over rolled flower and leaves from other wedding projects.  And don't you love lucious May Arts ribbon that my friend Charlene introduced me too???(she is on the May Arts Design Team and makes the yummiest things with ribbon)....oh my! I ordered a WHOLE roll of it for the wedding projects I have been working on. Thanks to Jill from Urban Papers for ordering it for me!

I put the natural ivory Stampin Up cardstock through my big shot with a swiss dots embossing folder for a little texture. Gotta love that folder!

 Abby wanted a little holder of some kind for  her bridesmaids gifts--so I whipped up these cuties. Although they are gift card holders, there is also room for the gifty she wants to give the girls. (Can't show you that because they might peek here.)  I guess they can at least look forward to a Starbucks treat when they get here though!

A peek inside of the little purse/gift card holder. The girls will be needing a little caffeine I am sure! (me too)

Here you can see the side view and see that it is fairly slim little box. I love how this turned out!

Please check out what the rest of the team has made for you today!

It's beautiful....I just may have to put that purse/box. Haven't seen on quite like that. I want to see more more more of all these goodies you have been making for the wedding. I've been away to the mountains for a few days with no internet...crazy relaxing.

So pretty! Love the rich green!
I can't even believe you had enough time to make anything so close to the wedding...that in itself is pretty amazing!
