Lucia Gift Certificate Holder

Ok I know I told you yesterday I was done with Christmas!!! I guess that is why I should never show my hubby what I make.  After showing him the gift card holder for our nephew he said I should make something for Grandma.  Grandma is in her 80's and living on a fixed income. She has about everything she could possibly want but every Sunday after church her and her girlfriends get together and go to a restraunt and have breakfast so for Christmas we get her a gift certificate to the place she goes.  That way she can continue to go and she doesn't have to worry about where the money is going to come from.

I wanted to make it pretty so I used the Lucia stamp that again my buddy Lisa Cook gave me images of.  I am so thankful that Lisa was my Secret Santa this year!!! She blessed me with sooooooo much.  Anyway, I know that traditionally Lucia is suppose to have a white dress but I love pink so and had to change that a bit.  You will see this in many of my posts.  I am not such a princess but like the color pink on girl images.  I used a bit of stickles on her dress and on the candle to of course glitz her up!!!!! On her wreath of flowers in her hair I chose to use flowersoft instead of coloring with my copics like I did on the rest of the image.  I used my cricut to cut the swirl sitting behind her the cartridge was Stretch Your Imagination. Also my MS double loop punch to give the scallop edge.  I just know that Grandma will adore it!
