Midweek Magnolias DT #87 Frame It!!

 Hello my dears,  it's time for another challenge over at 

This fortnight the theme is "FRAME IT" you can choose to frame your image or like me frame something else on your creation.  I've used one of my air dry clay Martha Steward silicone moulds to frame the cute flowers. 

My up-cycled Ferrero Rocher choccie box and matching card are for my friends Birthday, we try to surprise each other every year with something a little different and as we are both crafter it inevitably ends up being something hand made. 

Here is the card to match the gift box. I've used Tilda from the With Love collection 2013.  She has been coloured with TH Distress inks.  I've also used a mini Tilda 

I bought some TH distress ink pens a couple of months ago and I've been having a wee practice now and then when I can find the time. This is the first complete image coloured with them. Not too bad but still lots of practice needed.  

This is the chocolates I bought my Daughter for Easter (I snaffled her box to use for my project)!!! but I made her a cuter box to replace it.

Inside I've filled it up with 6 lovely large shabby chic antique flowers that I made, I also made the one on the front.

Our sponsor is the wonderful Magnolia Sweden

OMG Suzi what can I say about this. Gorgeous!! I love everything about it. Your colouring is superb, even if you think you need more practice, lol. The design of both the card and box are lovely and those handmade flowers in the box are completely lush and absolutely spot on perfect for our 'handmade flowers' challenge.
