Happy Friday to all! Hope everyone is shaking off those nasty viruses. We're feeling a bit better after more than our fair share and pleased to say I still have been creating presents for upcoming birthdays. Today I'll show a gift box with its own lid, I made a couple of these before christmas, paper is from Michele (I've been a follower for a while and these gorgeous papers were given to followers on her fab blog..many thanks Michele, at last I've found a good use for them). Gorgeous 'friendship' image from the lovely Paulette that I've touched up with Promarkers to give them a little colour, made it into a tag, cream lace and ribbon from stash. So it looks like this present is mostly made from digitals.
This is the top of the lid, sentiment from Paulette.
So lots of challenges...Sir Stampalot 'friendship', Crafty Ribbons 'new beginnings' maybe new friendships, Creative CraftCrafty Creations 'new' (image and sentiment) as are Incy Wincy, Crafty Calendar, I Love Promarkers 'tag it', Inky Impressions 'sentiment', Inky Chics (fab new challenge blog..yippeee) 'anything' as are Dream Valley, Papertake 2nd, Totally Papercrafts 'ribbon', Craft Your passion 'vintage, shabby chic', and Stamptacular Sunday 'don't be square'. I think there's enough there!!! Wishing you all a fab day and thankyou for all the wonderful comments.

Welcome to the "Vintage - Shabby Chic" Challenge at Craft Your Passion Ruby! This project is wonderful... love the lace and vintage tone to your box. I especially like punched lace on the bottom of your paper.
