Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well so far....I have been spending some much needed time doing some domestic work, I procrastinate far too often when it comes to housework and hide in my crafty fortress instead, lol, so I have been getting rid of some clutter, washing windows, purging old, stained or torn, or doesn't fit anymore clothes from the girls room.......I was joking with my husband and told him "I'm really worn out, I'm not used to doing this much housework, lol"
Seriously it's not that bad....most of the clutter is just a lot of laziness and not wanting to put away what was gotten out, ugh, I thought girls were supposed to be neater than that, I'm hoping some day they will grow out of it :)
Today I am excited to share this Boxed Set I created...........it started with one card that I cased from my upline....Thank you Dawn! Anyway I loved the card, made my own but changed it up a bit, then decided to re-create it in a few colors with different sentiments, then I thought they need a box...............so the result is a beautiful box with 4 greetings. This set would make a great gift and of course when emptied the box could be refilled.
I ended up creating a card in coastal cabana, baked brown sugar, pistachio pudding, and pink pirouette. The sentiments include a Thank you, a Happy Birthday, a Hello, and a Just for you.
I love the look and the technique, I'm picturing some other images that would also work well :)
The flowers I used were a combination of the 'petal parade' and 'petite petals' I used a blender pen and ink to paint the brown sugar flowers, I love how they turned out....can't wait to get my hands on the new blender pens SU is coming out with :)
That ruffled ribbon is just the right accent to the scallop circles.....ruffled ribbons are on my favorites list!
