Teddy Bo Twisted Gift Card/holder

School holidays are over and our oldest granddaughter went back to school today, Layla goes back to Kindy tomorrow and I get to babysit Isaac.
I went to class at Shirleys this morning with Fran and then popped out afterwards to pick up a couple of dies from the craft shop for Shirley. Fran wanted a new vacuum cleaner so we went looking for that as well.
Adrian and I had a quick tea and then I had to rush off as it was the first rehearsal for Adelaide Harmony Choir for the year. New music to be picked up and also purchased and we already have our  performance scheduled starting with singing at a Peace Forum in February.
It is being held at the Football arena in town where they have been building new stands and clubrooms. We will get to see inside. Lots of money being spent on this venue!!!
I hadn't had any time to sit down during the day to make a card so it had to wait until after I got home from choir.
Here is what I made......

Sorry it was a bit hard to edit out the background due to the shape of the card and because my sentiment sticks off the card on both ends!!! I also chopped a little bit of the corners   :(

Front of card

Inside of card- I'm not quite sure what I am going to put in the middle yet... It has a pocket to put a gift card in but I might also make an insert to fit in to write a message on.

SU Night of Navy cardstock
DP (could be SU) not sure
White card from stash
SU Very Vanilla cardstock for the sentiment
Sentiment is from a freebie set of stamps that came with a magazine

I am entering this into the following challenges:
