Sweet box (quite literally...!)

This is a small 4" box I made for my mum as she wanted something to put some little sweets in that she had bought as a present. I have used Papermania Henbury lane papers and as they are so detailed and beautiful I didnt really want to spoil them with lots of embellishments! So I have just added a ribbon to dress up the rim a little :)

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz challenge - Anything but a Card!
Creative Cottage - No Cards Allowed!

Thanks for looking!

Wedding Card

I dont make that many Wedding cards, only when the need arises! This was one of those times and I happened to remember some fab digi stamps and tutorial I'd seen here and thought they would be perfect for the occasion! Despite not having that many promarkers yet I did the best I could with the shading and think it looks ok, it's the first time I have done any real blending/shading with my pens and I see now why I NEED all the other promarkers...maybe when I win the lottery hey!!

I would like to enter this into the Crafty Angels challenge - circles or squares
Papers are from Dovecraft Wedding pack and the word is Peel-offs.
