A Gift From The Heart

Wow hello again,
can't believe this is my 3rd post in a week. This gift box was inspired by my last project. When I made my last card (Smelling the Roses) I thought the design would make a great box lid so I developed the idea and created a 6" x 6" box and sandwiched it between 2 chipboard panels that had been covered using Cappella DP's from Basic Grey. I did choose to use a different image as I hadn't inked up the beautiful Daisy for ages.
I feel I'll be making alot more of these come Christmas time. Anyway I am entering this project into the following challenges: - X is for Xtra dimension (chipboard box with large handmade flower) - #98 Colour Challenge 'Blush Blossom, Choc Chip, Mellow Moss' - Paper Flowers (made my own distressed paper peony)

Super dimensional flower

ProMarker Colour Recipe:

I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress inks for distressing.
