Charisma Cardz - GDT :)


Today Im sharing my first project for Charisma Cardz as their GDT for May.  I love their challenges, so was really chuffed to be asked, even though it seems like ages ago since I announced it on my blog! lol. :)

Anyway, the theme this week is 'No Cards Allowed'.  Now, I spent a couple of days last week making boxes to store my cards in as they just dont look nice in envelopes when there are lots of embellies, and they are also quite hard to store.  I have been lucky enough to sell my cards in the past at the local hairdressers but it has now been sold, so am stuck with quite a few until I have time to do a craft fair.



I decorated one of my boxes with this cute image called Garden Mae from Some Odd Girl who are sponsoring the challenge this week.  I coloured her with PM's and I used MS punches and some scrap strips of card for the trellis design.  The DP is Kate Knight (freebie) and I used stickles for sparkle.

I am entering this in the below competitions:

Stamp Something - Things with wings
Totally Papercrafts - Glitter
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything Goes - 2nd entry
Creative Inspirations - Digi Day
Spoonful of Sugar - White + one (blue)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and I hope you find time to check out the other wonderful and inspirational projects by the rest of the DT.

Love your butterflies & the way they are peched. The matching of your paper to those swirls is terrific & the scrap trellis is quite delightful. The dimension on the wdging is lovely too.

How beautiful Alison; the butterflies look so pretty against the paper and I love the flourishes. I agree, your cards are far too gorgeous to be stuffed into envelopes and deserve to be presented in equally gorgeous boxes. xx
