Mercy's Tuesday Sketch 82 - Tiny Miracle

My little project today centered around Mercy's Tuesday Sketch 82.  I love Mercy's sketches.  They're so much fun to interpret.  (I didn't notice until after I took the photos that my ribbon was crooked...arghhh. Fixed that!)
I cut the scalloped oval from some pink wool felt I had leftover from another project.  I hand stitched the sentiment circle using heavy duty thread. 
Anyway, here's Mercy's sketch:
Here's the rest of my gift project....

I made the little Bun in the Oven box from Papertrey Ink.  After I bought mine, I found a FREE template  that looks exactly the same!  I added a clear acrylic window to the front.  Inside the oven, is my little sock cupcake.  Carolina has a really good video tutorial here for making them. 

I made a pocket on the top inside of my card to hold a gift card.  I just used Scor-Tape on 3 sides of matching paper about 1 /12" wide and 4 inches long and popped in my stroller shaped gift card.  Worked like a charm.

Stamps - Michael's $1 (love that!)
Ink - Versafine
Accessories - Prima roses, buttons, heavy duty thread, ribbon, bun in oven template, gift bag, baby socks, cupcake paper, MS scalloped border punch, SU tag punches,  acrylic tag, acrylic sheet (oven window)
