Embellish It Week 6 - Store it.

ahooo I made it through another round. Only 3 weeks to go :D Okie's this weeks challenge was set by Karen Calcutt and her criteria was to:
-Create a card compendium to give as a gift.

-It must be made from at least 2 PP's from the same paper range.
-They must include a couple of cards to show how it is used.
-I would like the card compendium to look nothing like mine. (since someone has already made one in last weeks challenge)
-We require you to create an embellishment by taking a store bought embellish such as the flower shown and altering it in some way.

Okies so those of you who know me or who have followed my work know that I am not a card maker at all!! So this challenge was definitely going to put me out of my comfort zone. So after stressing and worrying what on earth I was going to make I came across this tutorial on how to make this awesome box here. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make it..knowing it would definitely be something I could keep or give away as a gift in the future. So out of this tutorial this is what I created :D

TFL...Have a great day...I need to go and attend to my extremely cranky daughter...she's teething at the moment :(
Love Belynda xx
