Creations by AR Blog Hop!

It's time for another gorgeous template release from Creations by AR! This month there are three new templates on offer and they are available now! 
I've created a gift-set using the Elegant Sole and Gift Card Purse templates. Also available is the Tray Chic template. I've used papers from Basic Grey Wisteria again and decorated with die cuts, ribbon and pearls.
Inside the purse is a great little slot to stick in a gift card, cute right?
