The ABC challenge GDT

Hi Guys, the lovely Julie asked me to be GDT for the ABC challenge, and of course I said yes!  the theme this time is 
A thank you card or gift for someone special,
I've made a couple of coasters with a presentation box,
Sorry this post is picture heavy again lol!
I made the box to fit the coasters and cut out the aperture using a round spell binders die and then a larger scalloped one for the trim,
the gorgeous papers are from the lost and found pad,
the coasters were sold at The Range in a plain state to be altered any way you fancied,
I layered Pion paper onto the base then added a Cheery Lynn doily die for texture and detail, this made it not too thick but looked nice lol,
I then layered a circle scalloped nestie with a plain one with the image on and then coated the whole thing with heat embossing powder, this sealed the coaster for when in use,
My images are coloured with my distress re-inkers and the edges are stamped with a flourish stamp by Magnolia in vintage photo,

Magnolia Tilda is a special Tilda available from Doe@ding
Joyful Tilda 
Distress re-inkers
Cheery Lynn ~ French pastry doily die
Spellbinder circle and scalloped circle
Clear embossing powder
MME Lost and found paper pad @ MCH
Mesh Butterfly @ MCH
Prima Serenade/pink flowers @ MCH
White sheer ruffle edge ribbon @ the pretty little ribbon shop
Pion paper
LOTV ~ Label

It's a Magnolia challenge ~ alter a home decoration
Anything goes ~anything goes

well guys, hope you'll join in the fun!
happy crafting,
