Get Creative and Cherry Nest in perfect harmony !

Well it's the 5th of the month and you know what that means ? No not five days since the beginning of July  ( well yes and that ) what it means for me is The Get Creative card challenge is live and what an interesting theme are fearless leader Irini has for us this month.


We where asked to create a card with the above colour combination gorgeous colours I'm sure you will agree. Our sponsor this month is Cherry Nest online store who not only is offering two gifts to the lucky winners but they also sponsored the whole Design Team !!! How about that then !

 I made a picture frame out of cardboard which I covered with some lovely cotton material and distressed it a little around the edges. I stamped the back of the frame with SU French text in Pacific point ink and yes once again another flower in the top right hand corner ! Seems to have become somewhat of an addiction !! Help ! I used my big shot for the flower using the SU Daisy die cut with various papers the orange spotted one in the centre is by our sponsor Cherry Nest.









I thought I would share a couple of boxes with you that I made using two of the Cherry Nest papers


For the rosette treat box I used the hounds tooth image and copied it onto transparent film and attached it to the front of the box made a two layer rosette using the Tim Holtz die and affixed it ( ooh I like that word ) to the front flap. The second box well it speaks for itself I used this orange spotted paper in my above " creation " on the flower . Both boxes produced with my Silhouette machine.

Why not pop over to Get Creative to see what the other DT members have created to inspire us all this month and also check out this months super talented guest designer Elina Koutsouradi , she is one talented lady and, makes the most amazing lay outs.

Before I leave you have been making some rather large paper flowers this week in the hope that I would be able to get them out of my system ! Seems I can't produce anything lately if it doesn't have a flower on it ! 

Anyways hope you like them because they took forever and can't get the ink from under my rather long fingernails !!

In the words of Bugs Bunny " That's all Folks "

Bye
