Little Birdie Gift Card Holder

I saw this card on the Simple and Sincere blog and I just had to case it. I really adore the Little Birdie Told Me stamp set and loved the colors. The gift card holder is really easy to make too. And yes, that is a Tiger Woods gift card in there! I am sure that is the face he was making when his wife caught him cheating on her!
