Today I wanted to make something for the Cheery Lynn challenge which is Gold and/or Silver and as I just could not think of a card other than silver / gold wedding anniversary or christmas I decided to go for a gift box & tag instead.
What made things even harder was the fact that I have no paper or card in either silver or gold, so after a search I found this gorgous freebie paper from Bearly Mine Designs here and the mushrooms looked golden. I printed straight on to card and used a template to cut out a pillow box. For the tag I cut out some white card and also printed off some more of the same Bearly Mine paper and edged both pieces with a gold calligrapher pen.
Next step was to colour some die-cuts with the pen. I used Cheery Lynn B117 fanciful flourish and DL112 butterfly. I had already coloured a Tilda image in pencil crayons and I couldn't resist cutting her out and sitting her on the mushroom. (and yes I did manage to cut off one of her curly locks!) The ribbon, lace, pearls and gold peel-off corner are from my stash. The flowers and butterfly charm were in a bag of candy which I was lucky enough to win a couple of weeks ago from Donna - see my side bar for a link to her weekly blog candy.
