Cards and Gifts...

This year I'm trying to create some Gifts and Card combos.  You know, those cards that include a special gift attached.  Now, most people think of attaching gift cards and checks (*or cash), but I'm thinking of something a bit different.  Like, handmade jewelry and ornaments. 

I'd like to share with you a creation I worked on a few weeks ago and haven't been able to post until now.  It's exactly what I'm talking about.  A Gift/Card combo that will hopefully be a treasure to whomever receives it.
