Basic grey challenge 53- pink and brown colour combo.

 Basic Grey papers- Sultry paper pack- peony and russet brown.
 border sticker- from my Sultry pack too!

Morning peeps!!!!!

Well, my Lou (who might I add has some extremely yummy bloggy-versary candy on her blog) and Fleur have been at it again this weekend...pushing me into my paper cupboard in the stroke only section....and making me use my BG papers!!!!! :) :) romfl!!!!!!!

So I just had to dip in there ans get out one of my very stroke only packs, Sultry, to join in with the colour combo challenge on the Basic Grey challenge blog, its Pink and Brown.

My mums birthday is coming up in october so I decided to give make a box for my mums pressie to go in. The tutorial for it is by a lady called Maria bell, here's a linky to the tutorial.

I had to use this little Tilda that has been sitting on my desk for a couple of weeks, I stamped her ages ago and had got her out for a christmas card but she sooooo fitted the colours so had to be used for this box instead!!!
 I nestifyed a scrap I had left from the peony paper to make a little oval for tilda to sit on and stamped the magnolia swirl on it. I had a few more teeny bits of the peony and russet brown left so using my PM mini punches I made some super sweet folwers to sit on the ends of the swirls. The centres are made with my pearl maker pen, its the krystal effects one and I love it!! 
And here's inside.....
Its shamefully empty at the minute but I am hoping to fill it on payday!!! :)

So that me for today peeps, off to take little mo to school and pop in on my mum then home for crafty time!! yey!!!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxxx

  8. Lou this is gorgeous. I love pink and brown together and Tilda looks vintage in her muted tones. The box is the cleverest of ideas. As always a delightful and clever project from you. I can tell you for sure your Mum is going to love it.
