Just for you gift set....

Hi Susan here.....

At Fussy and Fancy this week is the turn of Group B to give you some inspiration for our ongoing challenge -
We are celebrating our 1st Birthday and there are some fabulous prizes up for grabs....It can be any sort of celebration you would like. Some of our DT are celebrating Christmastide, but others chose other celebrations--think New Year, birthday, baby, wedding, just about anything you can celebrate is fair game! We can't wait to see what all of you create!
Please call across to The Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog for full details of the challenge, prizes and inspiration from our design team, and join in the fun, the prizes are too good not to!!

Now on to my card.....

My card is open for any celebration, where I want to give a gift and a card to someone special in my life.

I have used backing papers from HOTP Cardmakers Ultimate Paper Pack. They are some of the most gorgeous papers ever. I love using them.
My base card is turquoise and is from The Paper Mill Shop.

I used the same base turquoise card for my box, and some remnants of the papers from my card to decorate the top. My ribbon, lace, pins and pearls are from our local market.

I have used my new digi image designed by Christina Dee for Emma to give to me at Christmas.
I love using her....I have called her 'Suzette'.
I have used Promarkers to colour the image in soft shades of browns and creams, then added some glitter to the image here and there.

I have made my flowers in the hope of mimicking the flowers in the background paper. I have added glitter to the centre petals.

My sentiment has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs. I have added stickles to the outer edges.

Challenges I am entering:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card and for all the wonderful comments that you leave for me. I hope you liked it.
Love Susan
