Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time

Hi and welcome to another Throwback Thursday Challenge!  First of all I want to give a warm welcome to our newest design team member Liz from Liz's Paper Loft!!!  We are so lucky to have this talented lady join the Design Team!!!
This week Emma has set up a "Cricutless Challenge".  You can make any project of your choice but include the colors Purple, Green, Orange and Black
The My Creative Time Design Team are all using Emma's "All Around Halloween" stamp set today.   I also used the "Scallop and Stitched Circle Die", the "Embossed Gift Card Holder" and the "My Journaling" Stamp set.  You can purchase them all HERE.

Here is my take on the challenge.

 I used the Gift Card die to cut some felt and stitched it onto the card as a pocket.  Then I used the die again to cut some paper for a tag fit in the pocket.  I purchased a pack of felt sheets at the dollar store (3 pieces each of 4 colors).  The felt is opaque but very thin.  It was a breeze to cut with the die but still substantial enough to be sturdy.  Sometimes I find some real GEMS hiding in Dollar Tree! :) 

 I cut the Scallop twice for a layered look.  The gems are actually from the T-shirt section of Michaels.  They are brand named "Tulip" and seem to have a better variety of colors than the IRock gems.  Sometimes I also hit the jewelry section and look for Jolee's heat gems if I cannot find the color I want.

I also used MCT's "My Journaling" stamp set for the tag inside the felt pocket.
