Sowing the Seeds of Love

Hi Folks
Hope you all had a good weekend.  I got lots done on my daughter's wedding invites and some DT work done so  productive weekend for me.

A quick post from me today to let you know that Kraftyhands are launching a new CD called Sowing the Seeds of Love.  The CD will be on the British Craft Network at 11.00am.  The CD contains lots of gorgeous images, card sets and papers.  

Here is one of my sample projects using toppers and papers from the CD.

I received a box of chocolates at Christmas so I decided to recycle and alter the box.  All of the toppers and papers are from the CD.  Additions from my own stash were the ribbon, flowers, metal butterfly and the butterflies using my butterfly punch.

I also decorated the inside and outer edge of the box.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  And if you get a bit of time just check out the British Craft Network shows where the Kraftyhands guys bring loads of inspiration.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafting for all Seasons - Things with wings
Crafty Ribbons - Anything but a card
Fussy and Fancy - Things with wings
Creative Inspirations - Roses
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything goes
Polka Doodles - Flower power
