project overload

Hi all. this is going to be a bit of a rant as i have two projects to show you combining 3 different challenges. the first one is Kellies sketch challenge #2
I just love this sketch, it was so easy to work with and i had several ideas, i was very excited to get started on this one, unfortunately the world was conspiring against me to get anything done this weekend so it took over two days before i finally got to put my ideas to paper!
Here she is, one of my new magnolia stamps. i just love this little Tilda, she is just so summer. At the top of this card i used my Stampin' up Friendly words jumbo wheel and clear embossed it and them sponged some ink on top of that to match the colours i used on my Tilda. it did not come out the way i was hoping, you can kind of see the words if you look hard (and squint, stick your tongue out the side of your mouth, hop on one foot, etc...) but that's ok the effect matched the papers i was using anyway :)

My next project combined Kellies sketch with Creative Inspirations challenge #22 (gift box, bag etc) and Simon says challenge (anything but a card)
I made a little pizza style box, the instructions can be found here
and here is a side view. i thought i would use this to hold a bracelet i made for my niece for her birthday to match a dress we got for her.
I was going to put glitter on both of their wings but i forgot and now they are all mounted up on their projects i think it will be a bit to messy, oh well, i will just have to put in the extra effort to remember next time :)
