You Are Beautiful


I have been so intrigued with the Explosion Box that I just had to try it!
Well it has taken me a few days as I wasn't sure how I wanted to decorate it and
I have seen some amazing boxes on Google Images.  
Mine is quite simple compared to some.
Here it is!!

I will have to explain this for my non crafty friends
The top left hand corner is the box lid; the 4 extended pieces fold up and the lid holds them 
My recipe for the box:
Inspired by Stamping stamps: Spring Lilacs (butterfly)
Trendy Circle Sentiments
Spellbinders Dies: Fleur de Lis Squares; Parisian; Accents & Motifs; Shapeabilities Medallion Two;
Susan's Garden: Mini Lilies
Adhesive pearls.
I colored the butterfly using
Sakura Pen Aqualip Yellow 
and Adirondack Caramel.
Designer Paper: Divine Collection.

I am entering this into:

Wishing You a Happy Birthday - Graphic 45 'Secret Garden'


I recently purchased a pad of Graphic 45 'Secret Garden' paper.  I love this paper and
so wanted it but I have been really nervous to use it!
Yes I have used other Graphic 45 papers but was told that this particular one will no longer
be available so that is the reason for being cautious.  I think I was lucky to find a supplier on line
who had it in stock.

This morning I decided to give it a go and this is my card.

Here is what I used:
Graphic 45 'Secret Garden' Paper
Stamps: Inspired by Stamping - Chalkboard Birthday & Mason Jar Add-On II
Inspired by Stamping Lace & White Seam Binding (which has been distressed with 
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye).
White pearls which I have colored using Scripto Marker

As I have used the Sentiment, Lace & Seam Binding from IBS, I will enter it into their monthly Customer Gallery!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
