Three Challenges this time

Well times does fly - it doesn't seem like two weeks since the last
lovely hAnglars only challenge. This time we are been asked for shabby chic, which I love.


The papers are from Donna at Bearly Mine Crafts I bought the Designer Extreme Vol III and told Donna that flowers were not my first love, when I got the CD (she posted it Friday and I received it in Germany on the Monday - unbelievable) the paper I immediately fell in love with - this floral that I have used for the background, it is just so beautiful. I followed the fabulous sketch from Everbody Art Challenge which I thought suited the shabby look perfectly. The cute little hAnglar girl is coloured with distress inks, I masked her and sat her on a border from Prima's Build a Frame set. The script paper is also from the same CD, the flourish stamp is Stempelglede, the flower from Papirloftet, the beautiful Pearl cluster was sent to me by my friend America - (love you loads huni!!!), the braid is some I made (braiding tutorial coming up very soon), and the flourishes cut with a Marianne Creatable stencil.  The edges are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and stickled with Star Dust stickles.I'm also hoping this qualifies for the Nice and Girly challenge af Bunny Zoe's they'll have to throw me out if it doesn't.
I have promised myself I will make the box at the same time I make the card and not end up with dozens of boxes all needing to be made.  I was going to print out the same paper to decorate the box then whilst scrolling through the CD, had the idea of using one of the 'inserts' instead,  I think it works really well.

Well folks, that's all for today - I'm off to grout some of my kitchen tiles - horrible job!!
