Penny Black Gift Box

This Gift Box will be to put a friends Christmas Gift in. I have entered it into the following challenges:

  • The front of the box is the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday "sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.com".
  • The challenges at Winter Wonderland "christmasblogchallenge.blogspot.com", Everybody Art "everybody-art-challenge.blogspot.com" and Stampavie and More "stampwithsarahkay.blogspot.com" wanted Gift Wrap, Boxes etc.
  • The Competition from Double Dutch "doubledutchchallenges.blogspot.com" wanted a Gift Box using their template but I used one of my own - hope that's ok.
  • And the challenge from Paperplay "paperplaychallenge.blogspot.com" wanted something that wasn't a card.

The image is from Penny Black Holly Day Critters Set and the other three sides and the top are embellished with Marianne Creatables flowers and the snowflakes are from the corner punch from Martha Stewart's Aspen Snow. The card for the box and the papers are from the Daisy and Dandelion Christmas collection.
I added some red pearls that I got from a QVC kit a couple of years back.

Hi Mia, lovely box! I'm sorry, but the challenge was indeed to use our template, so your entry is invalid I'm afraid. Thank you for playing along though, hope to see you back soon!
