Just Magnolia challenge - Anything Goes

Yay, it's Friday and that means it is time to announce the next Just Magnolia challenge! It couldn't get any easier than this week's challenge, because it's "anything goes"!!! Yep, you can do anything you like as long as you use a Magnolia stamp! I chose to make a wrapper for a box of chocolates to go with the Thank You card I made for last week's challenge. I used the same papers and card, distressed with frayed burlap distress ink and stickled.
I masked two of the gorgeous spring kit images together so that Tilda is looking out of the castle window. I have coloured the images with distress inks. Our sponsor this week is Wild Orchid Crafts and the DT were lucky enough to receive a gift of some flowers to showcase on our projects! I'm sure you all know by now how gorgeous, and good value, their flowers are! I love the colours of these ones. All the flowers on this project are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've sprayed them with glimmer mist.
I have stamped the New Year swirl from Magnolia around the tag and the sentiment is from Whiff of Joy. I sprayed the tag with glimmer mist and allowed it to dry completely before I did my stamping. The thin ribbon was white but I coloured it with a copic to match the wide brown ribbon from my stash. I cut the flourish with Tim Holtz flourishes die and I've used MS doily lace punch along the edge of the wrapper.
On the bottom of the box I have just added a couple of flourishes and my personal stamp.

Here is the box with the matching card from last week's challenge. These are now winging their way across the ocean (hopefully LOL) - let's hope they arrive safely! I hope you can join us this week at Just Magnolia. Pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing creations! x
