Natural Goodness or Excotic Richness

Good Afternoon

Today I want to share the box I made for my mother -in - law's christmas gift. I love giving handmade gifts, so I made her a mini album. Now for the box, I used cardstock in a pale grey for both the base and lid. The lid, I decorated a bit with goodies from my stash, using a Martha Steward border punch and some red lace for the sides. The top, I used a sketch from the Sketch file and the sentiment is my own, since apples are available to everybody to eat and crab and crayfish is a bit of excotic, only available to the rich, so whatever your appetite maybe. The digis is a crab from Tiffany Doodles and the apple, with which I made the border, is from Heartsong Designs. They are part of the Crafter's Digital Art Centre's 7th round in the Progressive Freebie Challenge that goes on till Februarie 2012. So, join the group and join the fun. This time, for the next 2 weeks, the theme is what's cooking.

I'm joining in the fun with the following challenges:

CDAC progressive challenge round 7(cdacpc7), tiffanydoodles, Heartsong
