A new fortnightly ABAC challenge!

Have you see the new challenge in town - Anything But A Card?  I was lucky enough to be invited to join the design team!  I've been trying to stretch my skills but I just end up making cards what with the limited time I have.  Being on this design team will force me to do something different!  You can check out all the deets here, but in brief the challenges are fortnightly with new challenges starting on the 1st and the 15th of each month.  And without further ado, here is my project...



I'm really pleased how this box turned out!  I followed the instructions over at Splitcoaststampers here (by the very talented and lovely Beate!).  I used my Nestie scallop heart and heart dies, digi stamp Summer Memories by Birdie Brown and My Minds Eye papers.  The flourish and flowers are made with My Favorite Things dies.

So, I hope you can join our challenges - it was so much fun to make something other than a card!  You can get more inspiration over at the blog here and find out more details on the prize that is valued at $150 from Lindy's Stamp Gang!





I am entering my project into the following challenges:
