Take Flight....Gift Set

I have decided to get a start on Easter gifts early this year, and rather than spending a fortune on Easter eggs which are mainly all packaging , I've decided to give handmade gifts. So this card and box is the first of many more to come lol.

The Card

I have followed the sketch at this weeks "Just Magnolia" challenge. The papers came free with an old crafting magazine (I think they are my minds eye). I used my cuttle bug to create the embossed panel and embellished the card with flowers and gems. I'm also going to enter this weeks "Stamp Something" challenge which is something Cute ~ you cannot deny that Tilda is cute in her little bee costume!

Attention to Detail:

I love this Tilda image and she works in just about any colour combination too. She has been coloured with my promarkers: Blossom, Pink Carnation, Satin, Blush, Dusky Pink, Apple, Leaf  green, Meadow green, cool grey 1, cocoa, walnut and Burnt Umber. I chose my embellishments to match Tilda's colours, the lace ribbon, green and white twine and button came from the Ribbon Girl (Fantastic website, awesome service).

I think the papers I used are My Minds Eye and I'm sure they came free with an old crafting magazine (If they are not please correct me lol).

The Box

This box has been recycled. It started out as a white box from letraset that they send you out your promarker pens in. I have covered if in green card and green papers. I then added the same image of Tilda to the front and embellished with flowers, buttons, gems and ribbon. The box is big enough to contain a small bar of dairy milk chocolate, but could also be filled with individual sweets/chocolates or crafty stash and given to a crafty friend lol.

Anyway Thanks for your time and sticking with me through all the photos.
