This week's challenge at Totally Stampalicious is to make a card for your BFF.  My BFF also happens to be my identical twin sister Judy.  I also made an altered container to go with the BFF card.  I used the Best Buds Brats stamp set from Totally Stampalicious for this gift set.

 When my sister and I were little, our Mom always dressed us in matching outfits.  Judy always wore blue and I always wore red.  It only seemed right to color these little Brats girls in the same colors we wore growing up.  I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch for the layout.  I had to move the sentiment a little  to make it work but I think it still counts!

 For the altered container, I started with an empty Laughing Cow Cheese container.  I decorated the edges with grossgrain ribbon.  The top matches the card with Poppy Parade and Marina Mist paper and satin ribbon.  I added a couple butterflies and of course the Best Friends image!  I filled the container with Dove Milk Chocolate eggs - YUMMY!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my BFF gift set today!  Hopefully you will get a chance to play along with this week's Challenge at Totally Stampalicious!  Click HERE to see all the fabulous cards the design team created to inspire us this week!
