Big Present

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I officially "went back to school" for my Master's in Quality Assurance on Tuesday last week and it's been kicking me in the butt.  I'm a little scared as to how I'm going to handle full-time work, sentiment work, design team work, school, and of course, squeezing in a some time for my hubby and our doggies, BUT I really want to finish my Master's and I know it'll be worth it.  Wish me luck because I'll need it!  So, if I'm not posting as much or leaving as many comments, then you know why.  Thanks for understanding :)
Enough about the boring stuff, let's go on with the card already!

In keeping with my resolution to use my unused stamp, this is another unused LOTV image called Big Present. I have a day off tomorrow so maybe I can actually squeeze in another card this week :)

Stamps: Lili of the Valley Big Present, Whimsy Stamps Ticket Sentiments
Medium: Distress Reinkers using the Small Koi Water Brush
Papers: Cosmo Cricket Wanted
Accessories: baker's twine
Tools: Tim Holtz Flourishes die cuts, MS border punch

This card is for a few challenges:
