March design team challenge

Welcome to http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/ March challenge of shaped dimensionals.

For this challenge I altered a mini hat box with shades of grey, silver and hints of red.  Paper used was from the $1.00 section at a local super store with was perfect for the color scheme I was looking for.  I made a pinwheel flower, punched flower in metallic paper along with rolled roses to finish on the lid. 



 
 Here are some additional pictures of the inside as well as the mini cards.

Enjoy!


The mini cards were made on the Cricut using Kraft paper.  Another card in grey toned paper was used to make the top layer, stamped with a watermark.  Red scalloped circle along with a smaller scalloped circle used to punch the "love" with the heart stamp.  I stamped again to cut the heart to layer with a foam dot.  The mini flowers were punched out of the scraps from the same paper and added stickles for center bling!  Very simple, but cute!















This project was also my Package Pals gift exchange with C.R.A.F.T.  http://www.creatingreallyawesomefreethings.com/2012/02/package-pals-linky-party-february.html  and my buddy, who lives in Tennessee was the recipient.  This was a really fun project to participate in.  She in turn made me a necklace with a bird nest...so cute since I love birds along with a homemade key chain which my daughter snatched immediately for her backpack.  Thank you Jamie over at C.R.A.F.T. for allowing me to participate!  I hope to do it again in the future!

I am also including this project in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge ( http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/2012/03/challenge-me-monday-103.html) in using at least three flowers for the project.  The cricut cartridge I used was from Fabulous Finds.  Thanks for stopping by
