NO SALE A BRATION on these projects..

Hello there my lovely blogging friends, gasp I took a break for our current Sale A Bration stamp sets to make this beautiful duo for one of my stamping friends birthday.
I have delivered it so I can share it on my blog with you all. I went a bit angle crazy here. The card is one of those new twisted easel cards and the box is a triangular shape. Now before you ask the dsp is a retired one form a scrapping kit SU used to sell, I am on a mission of using up my stashed stash *wink*
Ok I have to confess that I cannot stop using our satin ribbon, I am addicted to the lovely colours and this pumpkin pie is my fave by far. You know me and my love for bright colours.
Onto the card
A mixture of Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie with a bit of Olive thrown in. One of my other favourite things right now is the most gorgeous alphabet called Broadsheet it simply is the loveliest thing, I am working on some scrapbooking projects with it I hope to share with you at some point.
Ok I stamped the stem and the dotty leaves from the SWEETHEART set in olive and used the Fancy Flower  and the Boho Blossom punches to add a dimensional bloom, pearls were added to the centre of the flower. I have used Ali's initial on her card using the Broadsheet alpha as I know this is an alphabet that she is coveting so I wonder if she will finally cave in and buy it at her next workshop? The tiny bird was stamped, cut out and popped up with dimensionals.
The box
Made from one sheets of 12x12 designer paper scored at 3" and folded as a triangle I fiddled about with the bottom closures and VoilĂ  a different type of gift box.
I adore the top flower made entirely from the large Heart Punch put through the crimper, a circle of paper was completely covered in snail adhesive and a length of satin ribbon was twisted around to form the centre of the flower.
I want the day to get longer so that I can take some decent photos, these ended up bad yet again as is was gloomy by 4.30 when I got to photograph them. Oh well
I hope you enjoyed my pretties today till next time HUGS xxx
