Box Card

Hi everyone,

Well can you believe my son came home from the army for the weekend, he stayed at a friends and I saw him for......................... ONE HOUR! Oh well, it was great to see him and he is really happy so that is all that matters.

Anyway on to the matter at hand, today's card. This is my first attempt at a box card, it was demo and challenge by Crafty Shell at our retreat last week and you also had to have atleast 3 flowers and some pearls on it. Those of you who know Shell won't be surprised by this!

I decided not to use backing paper this time so all I have used is distress ink and a stamp and also some cuttlebug embossing folders. The image is Sugar Nellie coloured with promarkers cool greys 1 - 5. Flowers from stash and ribbon too.

Here is the inside of the box........................

This card fits the following challenges:

2 sisters challenge - embossing
Challenge up your life - monochrome
Stamping for the weekend - monochrome

Here is a close up of the image.

As always thanks for looking and have a happy Sunday!
