Think and Wonder Birthday Card and Box

Recently I was lucky enough to win a voucher to spend at a wonderful on-line shop, Happy Daze, as the lovely owner, Moira, kindly donated it as a prize in a Valentine Card competition on UK Stampers. I knew immediately what I wanted as she is one of the few UK stockists of the Artistic Outpost stamps, and I have been particularly coveting the 'Think and Wonder' plate. They are really good quality stamps. I have recently ordered from her again as she seems to sell all the goodies I love, so I bought the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper pack and chipboard embellishments. Together, they just about make a card on their own, without any help from me! So I made this card for the lovely Alison's upcoming birthday:-
Just added some braid and some shrink plastic buttons


For Alison's present I made a box and filled it with sequin trims, braid, and charms, and also gave her the collage I made last week. Here is the box:-





I used some gorgeous Eco Green Blue Patina paint which was a present from Lynne on my birthday (I can really recommend this paint), and an Eco Green set of stamps for the bird and the butterfly. The bird has been stamped on tissue paper, and the butterfly onto clear packaging material and then coloured from behind with Pro Markers.

Alison shares her birthday on the 24th with another dear crafting friend of ours, Hazel, and I hope they both have a wonderful day!
