Wake Up and Smell the Flowers

Hellooooooo hope you are having a fabulous week so far and if not weekend is on the way!  Over at Crafty Sentiments we have a new challenge and this week we want to see Flowers!! I have made my first pop up box card for the challenge:

I had a problem with lighting the day I took the pictures and ended up in the conservatory.  I have used the delightful Petal Fairy from Crafty Sentiments which is available here. The sentiment is also from Crafty Sentiments from the Spring Sentiments Set which is available here.  The papers are Hello Sunshine from Nitwits and I used the embellishments from the kit too.  I coloured the image with my Copics and added Glamour Dust to her wings.  She has been cut out using Dienamics Pierced Oval Stax and matted onto Spellbinders Lacy Ovals. The bow is a Tattered Lace die.  Here is a close up of the image:

She's a real cutie to colour.  Here is another view:

We have a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:

Also we have a new release coming up shortly:

Please go over to the Crafty Sentiments Challenge to see the rest of the DT's work.

Love your box Susan - was thinking of having a go at one of these myself - they're a great idea. I have also been playing catchup since I came back from holiday - so many family issues going on at the mo - and so little time - hm what happened to retirement! Hugs Judith x

Susan this is a great little box card. I'm loving that idea right now since they fold flat. How fun is that !!! Did you cut the box with your Cameo? I'm having quite the time trying to figure out how to cut the SVG files with my machine.
Hugs, Janie
