Challenge #51 - Bearlymine Designs Challenge - "Anything but a Card"

Good Morning Crafters, I dont know where the time goes the weeks are whizzing by and Ive no doubt most of the children have gone back to School this week after the long summer holiday, not that its been a very nice one as far as the weather has gone. Anyway to cheer you up its yet another challenge over on the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot, and for this we want to see "Anything but a Card" so I do hope you will get your thinking caps on a start creating some stunning projects.
And for this challenge The Paper Shelter is sponsoring us and they are offering a prize of :-
To spend on their website, and if I was wearing my other hat I would be tell you that these images are quite stunning and extremely good value, so its worth a trip just to browse and you will find it here.
And now for my project I created this box.

And for my papers I have used a Donna's beautiful "Roses Dream" and you will find them here, I printed two sheets and used one for around the sides, and the top I used the other one. I then attached the lace around the edge of the top by pleating it along some strong glue tape, and on top I used a velvet ribbon and tied the ends into a bow in the front.
The image I have used is The Paper Shelters "Dew Drops" and you will her here, I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, then used a large tag die to cut her out and then distressed the edge with some a lilac inkpad.
I then positioned it on the top and created a flower spray in the top right hand corner with some flowers in several sizes. I also created some smaller images to pop around the edge of the bottom of the box.
Now that youve seen my project I do hope you will pop across to the Bearlymine Designs Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you also will take part in this "Anything but a Card" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
