It's a box

Hi peeps,
It's raining cats and dogs here today so I thought why not do some crafting, I've had some fabby news which I will share as soon as poss but for now watch this space lol,

On a couple of challenges they are asking for anything but a card, well I was in the mood to do something else so I've made a box then done a larger top with my image and embellies on lol,

I've just had to use the same image of Tilda through the heart which I got the other week because I love her and she's fab to colour too,

As you can see I made my box using grey Cardstock to bring in the hints of grey on the image, the top is made using a Go Kreate die,
Simon Says Stamp's challenge is for anything goes and to use Tim Holtz products if you them, well you know how I love his stuff so here is my list lol,

Tim Holtz Distress tool ~ my paper edges,
Distress inks ~ Antique linen, tattered rose, spun sugar,Victorian Velvet,
Frayed burlap,Walnut stain, vintage photo, brushed corduroy, weathered wood, black soot,
Tim Holtz ~ Game spinner,
Tim Holtz ~ Film strip,
Tim Holtz ~ Foliage,
Vintage Shabby Pad,
Tim Holtz on the edge die,
I've used the die as another layer to the left of my image and this is also distressed,

Flowers are from a mixture of places,
Clear glass beads are Magnolia, Pearl heart is from the works, stamens are Kars, I've made the green twirls from the stems I cut off the roses and twirled them round my pokey tool,
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, pearls stash,
Glamour dust,

Challenges ;
Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything goes plus Tim Holtz if wanted,
Timbroscrapmania ~ everything but a card,
WOC ~ Love is
All that scraps ~ Queen of Hearts
I'll be back tomorrow with my DT cards, see you soon,
