Tickets Galore

We want to thank all of you who visited My Grafico during the past two weeks and were challenged to create a project and/or a card. Time for a new challenge! The theme is “Tickets Anywhere for Someone Special”. Enter for a chance to win this Tickets Galore set by Sanqunetti Design. Entries will be accepted until February 3rd, midnight Are you ready for this second challenge in 2012? Here is the file that we used and that you could also win .                                           
I just love this set.It contains all the tickets that you will ever need...all in one file!!! My first project is a VIP pass for a special girl's birthday. (If the crown looks familiar, it is also one of MG files.) I inserted her picture within the frame, sized it, and printed it. Easy Peasy. ( I did this in MS Word.)
Next I punched a hole in the upper middle and added a ribbon. I was lucky to find a ribbon with cupcakes because that is the theme she chose for her birthday party. Then I got really creative and added a ring to the main image:
I hope that she likes it. The only materials that I used were the My Grafico files, a free digital sentiment (wish I knew the artist..sorry) and ribbon from Michael's.

My next project contains a heart from a My Grafico file. The tag is from the current file. The treat box is  metallic red paper but the photo doesn't show it too well.
    Here is a close up of the heart. I printed it on checked paper and cut it out.Then added embellishments.

Here is a close up of the darling tag. I also printed this on red gingham paper then cut it out         

                                 Here is the file that contains the heart that I chose for this project.
