Friendship Gift






Really enjoy creating this project. It's one of my close girlfriends birthday soon and I wanted to give her something different. I had an old discoloured box that I used for hair clip and odds and sods. I painted it first with FolkArt pigment paint raw sienna and when it was dry I added a top coat of Vermeet Acrylic Gold, I relined the inside with Dark Chocolate heavy card and embossed this with my cuttlebug script folder. The flowers are made from CCSR paper, I cut the flowers from the backing paper and used stickles to glitter them up, the leaves and cream flowers are from old Xmas roses that I couldn't throw away, so I cut them up for this project. Not sure yet what I will put inside the box, maybe some earings or a bracelet with lots of tissue paper.

The box is going into 3 challenge and the card is entering 6 but I couldn't split them up!!

1. Moving along with the Times challenge: I followed Clare's sketch and the theme to go with it was to chose anything you liked.
2. ABC Challenge: Are looking for buttons this week, there are four on my card at the centre of the circles.
3. Pile it On Challenge: The theme this week is Good things come in Threes, I have 3 different types of embossing on my card and three pearls on my box.
4. Stampin' Chic Challenge: The theme this week is are you ready to be wowed!! Create something Chic.
5. The Crafty Pad Challenge: Is a recipe challenge this week of 1. Embossed paper
2. Ribbons 3. Buttons or brads.
6. Truly Scrumptious Challenge: The theme this week is anything but a card. I hope my box is acceptable.
7. Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge: The theme this week is Turquoise & Brown
my card has both these colours.

Thank you so much for visiting me, I really love reading your comments and appreciate your views.
