anything but a card.

Evening bloggers, Sorry my post is so late today i am still recovering from yesterday. I have had such a bad headache all day, so have been going in and out my craft room. I wanted to get this done today though as had some challenges it fits in with. You might of seen my post about the easel card i made HERE.  I decided that i would give it to my boyfriends mother for her birthday. As i had added lots of flowers to it i was uncertain how to send it, so decided to make a box for it to go in.

Stamps-magnolia, longing tilda, tilda with gifts, mid summer tilda
Box-white 12x12 bazzill card stock
DP-magnolia, pink starlit

create4fun-anything but a card
the secret crafter-apertures
creative card crew-to die for
2 sisters challenge-anything goes

I have coloured the tildas with distress inks and im pleased to say im getting better(at last) I am very happy with how this has turned out. I didnt want to decorate the front of the box to much as the card inside is decorated, so left it simple. I also didnt want to put a whole image on the front as that would be too much like the card. So came up with just using the top halfs. 3 fitted perfectly and im glad with how it has turned out.

Please leave any comments you have good or bad, love to know what you think.
