Stamp Fairy Challenge #8 - Handmade Flowers

Hi all today we have a new challenge which I feel may appeal to so many of you and that is 
We want to see your cards/projects with flowers made by your own fair and very talented hands.
I know that I have seen some amazing handmade flowers while visiting you and here is my DT project showing my version of handmade flowers.
I wanted to do something a little different and decided to make another box but a larger version of the one I have shown previously.
I have made a 6x6 box using a Stamp Fairy image coloured with Copics and the brand new Stamp Fairy papers that are now available to buy.
For my box I used Bazzill embossed card stock and SU Choc Chip, I have added pearls, lace and pink Organza ribbon.  I saw a video on Crystals blog which really impressed me if you would like to see it just go HERE .  I treated myself to the Sizzex Hello Kitty flower die from EBay, good price, great delivery, I have some handmade Mulberry paper so used the dusky pink to make two of the flowers then I tried it with 25% cotton ivory paper, which is the third one you can see.  I used crystal brads for their centres. 
The pink doily I made using one of the brand new XCut Multi Punch, this one is the blossom one, it punches borders, squares, circles, corners and ovals all in the one punch.
This picture above shows the side of the box, below shows the box open and filled not with sweets but silk flowers. 
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and please come back again, you are always welcome, I hope that you may have found a little inspiration to come join us at
