Thank You - Gift Set + challenges

Good Morning, Hope you are all well and happy, I made this little gift set for a few challenges.
it's taken me a couple of days but I'm pleased with the result. The reason it's taken so long is due to the drying time of the box. It's an old watch box, you know the type, it comes with a padded insert that the watch is wrapped around. I t was plain white and I decided to paint it with Gold Metallic paint, and that took 24 hrs to dry.

Don't know where or who is going to receive it yet, if I can ever come to part with it. Funny how some things you make are too pretty to give away. I've used loads of bits and bobs on the decoration on both of them so I will put the recipe for it at the bottom of the post.

The Challenges I am entering are:

1. Just Magnolia Challenge: It was this theme and fabulous Blog Hop that started this little creation off. I thoroughly enjoyed the Hop and followed the beautiful sketch with the added theme of Thank You. There is still time to join in so do pop over and see the DT's amazing creations.

2. Bizzy Becs Creatalicious Challenge: This month the theme is Flowers & Wings, both must be on your creation.

3. One Stitch at a Time Challenge: Has a Thank you theme this week.

4. Magical Crafts Challenge: This week would like Something for the Girls

5. Stamp Something Challenge: Would like you to Layer Something.

6. Cute Card Thursday Challenge: Would like Touchy Feely this week, ribbons, buttons, flowers.

7. Flutter by Wednesday Challenge: Danni would like to see your fairy's butterfly's please.

8. The Creative Cottage Challenge: Have the theme of Things with Wings this week.

9. Our Creative Corner Challenge: Would like to see Beautiful Butterfly's

10. Penny's Paper-craft Challenge: Has an open theme this week, so anything goes.

Well that's all from me for now, I now need to get on with my DT projects for this week, but I may be back later with more. I will definitely be popping over to a few blogs to say Hi.

Take care, Hugs Suzi xx
