In The Red

This is for:-
1. Creatalicious Challenge - challenge # 7 - "Create a little something"
2. Incy Wincy Design - challenge 30 - "Punch it out"
3. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 4 - "Lots Of Spots"
4. Tellen'sPlace - challenge # 6 - Birthdays
5. Cute Card Thursday - challenge # 100 - "Metal Mania
6. Saturday Spotlight - "Doing the mess around"

This card and gift box is an order for my mum's friend. It's for her Granddaughter's 21st, and she was quite precise as to what she wanted. She chose the image first, then requested - glitter, handmade roses, feathers, beaded stems, a key, and charms. Then there were a lot on the card it needed a gift box rather than an envelope. Near the end I was starting to think is there too much, what do you think?

Creatalicious Challenge asked us to "create a little something", so I would say this card in the gift box is a little bit more that a normal card that I would make. Punch It Out is the theme for Incy Wincy Designs, and my handmade roses are made from punched flowers. Do you like spots? thats the theme this week over at Totally Papercrafts, there's spotted papers on my card. You can only have 5 other challenges with Totally Papercrafts and luckily that was the only challenges this would fit into anyway. The subject is Birthday over at Tellen's Place, and I think a 21st is quite a special birthday. Cute Card Thursday want you to use something Metal and I have charms on my card. Saturday Spotlight wants to see distressing with ink and all my DP papers have been distressed around the edges with Aged Mahogany distress inks.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and are ready for the start of a new week, we woke up to a lovely thick blanket of snow this morning, it looks beautiful.
Happy crafting
