Summer Fun! Tilda's Secret Box

Morning folks,
It's time once again for a fab challenge over at Totally Tilda but before that I want to just say how grateful we are for all the wonderful creations you share with us every fortnight and the last challenge was no exception.
Anyway this time we want to see a Tilda creation with a Magnolia Sentiment. There are plenty to choose from so it shouldn't be too tricky so enjoy!! We are sponsored once more by the fabulous Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nicki has kindly donated a £10 voucher for her store so another great reason to give the challenge a go.
I have created a secret box and used one of my favourite sentiments 'A Gift From The Heart'. I was inspired to create this box when I saw a beautiful example on the very talented Norma's blog. Go check out her amazing work and she also has a great tutorial on there.

A view of the box open and that wonderful sentiment

Now a view of the outside of the box when open

I created the handmade flower on the top panel using some Nestie flower dies and then spritzed each layer with Glimmer Mist before scrunching it up. All of the lovely Tilda's are coloured with Promarkers and the beautiful DP's are all from Basic Grey.
I hope you liked this project and I look forward to seeing your Sentiment creations.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Just Magnolia - #165 'Bingo' (I used Ribbon, Flowers and Pink as my options)
The Stamp Man - 'Anything Goes/Summer Colours'
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - 'Tilda Only' (I took this theme a bit far and used 4 Tildas'!!)
Basic Grey - #72 'Fun in the Sun'
Crafty Creations - #178 'Free For All'
Sir Stampalot - 'July - What's Your Crafty Passion' (I just love making 3 dimensional items such as boxes and Magnolias are my favourite stamps)

Happy Crafting
