Gift Card Tin

Hello everyone!  It is challenge time again on the Meljen's Designs blog.  This week the challenge is Happy Birthday!  I was preparing to make a card, but I came across this tin that I have had for ages.

I am not even sure where it came from!  It is hinged at the top and measures 3.5" x 3.25".  It is the perfect size for a gift card.

I got to work transforming this tin into something a bit more fun.

What do you think?  I used Piggy Bank from this month's new release.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! and is raised with foam.  I originally started with a much larger image, and during the construction, I changed my mind!  The advantage of digital stamps is I didn't have to choose a different image.  I just printed a smaller one and kept on creating!

You can find this image as well as the rest of the new releases in the shop.  There are 11 new images for this month and they are all amazing!
