If there's one thing I struggle with in my card making, it is the sketches. I am thankful for the resources here on SCS and especially the Wednesday challenges! I enjoyed scratching my brain and creating this card.
My idea for making a gift came together quickly once I remembered this delightful package paper from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding. I cut unknown polka dot paper for the big gift and wrapped it with wire edged ribbon. The sentiment, from Cloud 9 Design was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and embossed in clear. I stamped this on Neenah white cs and used the nesties to scallop the edge. It is mounted on a rectangle (again nestabilites) of Basic Grey's Sultry patina and dry embossed on the edges. The card base is SU soft sky which has a bow (TooMuchFun Rubberstamps) stamped randomly across the top with soft sky ink.

Oh, Susan! I love how you made your card a gift! How very creative! We do love the same papers (I almost selected this one today, believe it or not, then I ended up going in a different direction)! The rick rack and gorgeous ribbon are just perfect! And what a wonderful sentiment - so true!
