Magnolia-licious DT - Blog Hop - Circles/Spots/Dots/Blots

Good morning my dears,  Welcome to our First Inspirational Blog Hop of 2015 over at

If you've come her from our sweet Barb then you are on the right track, if not then please return to Magnolia-licious Blog where you will find the order to hop along,  we don't want you to miss out on any of the Design Teams FABULOUS creations.

Our theme is Circles/Spots/Dots/Blots not necessarily all at the same time but if you are entering the challenge then we need to
see some of them on your creation.  

I've chosen to make two sweet boxed gift card sets,  which will hold 4 cards and matching envelopes.  The boxes were made using my Scor pal and my new Arched Elegance Pocket 3 spellbinder dies.

You will find a tutorial on how to make these boxes and cards Here

I've used  two images from the Lovely Duo Collection 2015
Time to Drink Edwin and sweet He do he don't Tilda, both have been coloured using ShinHan Art markers and Derwent Soft pencils. The pretty pink flowers are from Magnolia and the blue flowers from my stash. The bows were made using my envelope punch board.

Here is a peek at the cards inside the boxes, I've used numerous mini Tilda's and Edwins and various sentiments, keeping them fairly embellishments free so they stack inside the boxes easily.

Here are the boxes with the cards inside and the lids firmly in place.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you are having a fabulous hop and picking up ideas and motivation along the way.
