SOS Challenge #8

This week's SOS challenge is Out with the Old or In with the New..... "Use the paper and/or embellishments that you have “saved” because it was special,  find your oldest designer paper and use it, OR break out your newest items and use THEM! Be sure to tell us what you are using in your post!"

I still had my last shipment from SU sitting in it's box - mostly stuff from the retiring list, so I chose paper (sweet & sour DSP) AND ribbon (pumpkin pie taffeta) from the box. And I lurve the finished product!

Once again, I needed gift card holders, so same basic design as the "thanks a latte" cards from a few weeks ago, but diff colors. I cut the DSP too narrow, so used the narrower part of the Top Note die, and made square cards & then envies to match, also with paper from the pack of DSP. Please excuse the white border inside the envelope - double sided tape for mailing :)
