THE PAPER SHELTER #117 - ANYTHING BUT A CARD

Today the challenge at 
is
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
the prize is
Here is my GDT project, I have used one of the beautiful new images called
'I WON'
I have coloured her with Copics and mounted her onto a gift box, I have added some Viva Decor, butterfly, crochet bow and ribbon
the next picture shows the depth of the box 
the picture below is a close up of this beauty

finally the gift inside is 2 crochet headbands, the box and headbands have been sent to Australia to my neighbor's daughter. 
I would like to enter my project into
Many thanks for visiting I hope that you will join us for this weeks challenge.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has left me comments on my previous posts, unfortunately I have been unable to respond to each one in person as my fingers, wrists and lower arms have been giving me lots of pain, I have not even done any crochet so I am glad that I made this project a few weeks back.
I have taken some extra painkillers but have to keep my splint on but I will try and get to you little by little so please bear with me.

The first thing that caught my eye was the lovely hand-made knit bow. Then, I saw the lovely headbands. AND....your card is SO pretty, too! WOW! I was SO sorry to hear that your fingers are hurting so badly. That's no fun, but yet you're still managing to make beautiful art. Thanks so much for sharing with us in our challenge this week. Feel better soon!
