Creative Artiste DT

Well I would like to announce that I have been asked to join the Design Team for
and this is my first project for the December challenge which is 
Anything Goes.

I have always enjoyed making and altering things so now I can enjoy playing for a reason.

As Christmas is rapidly approaching I thought I would make my first project a Christmas one.
So I have made a box of Poinsettias. 
It starts out as a card in a box base, but I have folded the side down and shaped them to make it look a little different. The die cut poinsettias have been die cut using a Sue Wilson dies and Spellbinders dies. The top edge of the box and the top of the back have been edged with cotton lace.

I have die cut a variety of leaves including some Tim Holtz dies to fill in below the flowers. Then just added some berry stalks, tiny pinecones, and other leaves to add extra dimension.

I am really pleased to be working with some very talented ladies at Creative Artiste. Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what lovely things they have made too. 

I would like to enter this box in the following challnges
