Outlawz Greetings Challenge - Recipe

Hi, Crafty Peeps!
Well this posting is very late.  I should have posted it on Monday, but I was unhappy with my first effort, so...  Anymahoo, our challenge for you this week, courtesy of Alex, is create a project using the following recipe:  2 Designer Papers, Ribbon, Pearls, and a Sentiment.

 This is the year I try to expand my creative horizons.  I will endeavor to do "cute" and CAS.  Although this is technically not CAS, it is close enough.  I simply love the highlighted border technique and it is perfect for a challenge like this where the sentiment is supposed to be the star!

Whoa, I am so getting into "gussying up" the insides of my cards.  I try to keep it simple though.

Thanks for dropping by!  Hope to see you at the Outlawz!   Hugz, Chana

Card Stock:  Neenah 80# Solar White - Linen
Designer Papers: Matting : Echo Park "Happy Days"

You can find this image HERE

I am using Kissing Booth!
 This little gift card holder is based on a project I saw on  Grace Nywening's blog.

In the new incarnation of this design, I let the curvy border extend all the way across the page.

I am doing severeal more of these, but I am going to use the curvy border on all of the edges.  I think it will make the design more cohesive and cleaner.

 This is a weird shot, but it was the best way to show both sides of the holder!
