The Flower Challenge #15 'Anything but a Card'

Hi there friends, I am back with another DT project
for 'The Flower Challenge'. This month our theme
is 'Anything but a Card'.
So you could make some stationery, a box, a bag, 
 an ATC, a scrapbook page or if you get stuck what
about a simple tag!
 I decided to make a box and some flowers this time.
I made a simple rectanglar box which measures
7" x 4"x 2". I then made a few flowers and
added a label and some trailing leaves.

Anyway here is it, I was so pleased with it I went
on to make several more with different coloured
 lids. I am also making more flowers to go on top
of them all too. Pics soon!

We are lucky to have Michelle from 'The Card Grotto'
as our Guest Designer this month also. Check out
her gorgeous tag and also her amazing blog too ;)

I hope you will try and join in and share your
 projects with us. Come and see what my lovely
 teamies have made too and leave them some
comment love ;)

I made the box then my foamiran flowers too
using a flower die. I coloured them using my
 oil pastels. I made my tag after stamping and
embossing the sentiment.

 I coloured the edge part to match the flowers.
 After making & colouring my trailing leaves,
 I added them all to the box, along with the sweet
 little pine cones also.

I made a few very quick bookmarks below too.


The quotes say....
No1 "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people".
No 2 "Kind words cost you nothing but are sometimes worth more than a million dollars".
No 3 " Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year".

WPlus (Modern peonies stamp) Purple one

Here is our cue card below, please add it when
 entering our challenge this month, thank you ;)
