Mid Way Inspiration at Imagination Crafts

Hi Folks
Hope you are all having a good week.  Not long now till the weekend, yippee.  

We are now halfway through August and it's time for a little mid way inspiration over at the Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog.  Our theme for this month is:
Flowers
Anyone can enter the challenge and the design team choose a Top 3 from all the entries.  If you use any Imagination Crafts products on your entry then you are eligible for the top prize of a £40 gift voucher for Imagination Crafts.
So come on, get those entries rolling in.  What could be easier than creating something with flowers.  

Here is a little mid month inspiration for you.



When I have the time I do make some kumihimo jewellery.  I wanted a little gift box and card to give as a present.  So I came up with this little acetate box and gift card.  

For the box
Stamped the small daisy stamp from the Decoupage Daisy stamp set several times onto acetate.  Coloured the flowers in pink with some silkies.  I then went over the flowers with some white shimmer detail sparkle to make them all sparkly.  Die cut a couple of swirls and attached them all to the lid of the box.  Around the edge of the box I added some organza ribbon, a rose and some gems.
For the card
Mounted a piece of embossed white card onto hot pink coordinations card.  Added some organza ribbon to the bottom along with another acetate flower.  Stamped a sentiment 'Just for You' and added to the top corner.  A few gems and the gift card was finished.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  For more inspiration and to upload your entries just pop by the Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
