613 Avenue Create challenge 18

Happy Sunday everyone!

I hope the start of the week is going well for you all, and you are enjoying some nice spring weather!

We have a great new challenge happening at 613 Avenue Create, and it's a fun one!  The theme this week is Gift Packaging.  Team B has made up some fabulous creations to help get the creative mojo going, so pop on over and check out the rest of the team's projects, grab your crafty items and jump on in.  This week, we are being sponsored by Bugaboo and Eureka- what awesome sponsors that you could win images from!

For my project this week, I made a "secret box" that I found on the same website as the pop-up book card here.  There are many wonderfully fabulous tutorials to be found, and I can't wait to try some of the others.

 So, those are the two main pictures.  Below, for anyone who cares to see are pictures of each side and the top, as well as links to where the images and die cuts can be found =]

I placed the images on opposite sides of each other.  The one of the left is called Ava Fairy Special and the one on the right is Ava Swing.  The circular sentiment on top is called Circle Sentiments - Ava Fairy Special.  All images were colored with Copics.  The image panels were cut from Coved Rectangle Large and Large Circle Stackers.

These are the two floral sides.  I wanted them similar, but not exactly the same.  All dies are from Cheery Lynn.  Both butterflies are from the Small Exotic Butterflies set 2.  The doily on the left side is the Ambergris Tiny Doily and the one hiding on the right is the Rum Punch Tiny Doily.  The yellow flower on the left was made from the Shasta Daisy Strip, while the yellow flower on the right was made from the Daisy Strip.  The pink flowers on the left were made from the Chrysanthemum Strip and the smallest flower from Darling Daisies.  The pink and white flowers on the right were made from the Sweet Williams Strip.  The foliage is from a mixture of Rose Leaf Strip, Wreath Strip, Build a Flower 2 and cut up pieces of the Mini Fanciful Flourish.  Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, heart stick pins are from The Hobby House, sparkly heart brads are by Pebbles, and the flatback pearls are by Recollections.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you will be inspired to join us for such a great challenge.  I know I very rarely step outside of my card comfort zone, but I really had a lot of fun with this box!  Hope you have a fantastic week!
