Something different

 Tuesday 30 July Colour challenge at the Oultawz

Good day

This is my last day as guest designer at the Outlawz. They did had me in a corner with the twist.

One of my bible study friends lost her husband last week and I decided to make a small box with little tags in, where all the rest could write some message of condolences on and to put it in the box, so she can take her own time to read through them all.

I have found these beautiful green handmade paper at a shop on Saturday and it triggered everything. The dig is from Digistamp4Joy and the flowers are made with the use of a Sizzix die from Susan's Garden, called Poppy Flower. I used a glossy tissues paper for the petals. I added a ribbon to keep the box in tack and 3 pearls.

Challenges I was inspired by:
Pattie's creations #72 - Recipe use 3 embellishements
One Stop Craft #236 - Add ribbon & flowers
Tammy's Scrappin #73 - Use a digi
Eureka Stamps #50 - Anything goes
Digistamp4Joy SA #72 - Fancy folds plus handmade flowers (hope a box is a fancy folded item)

Thank you
