Charisma Cardz Guest DT project

Good morning crafters, it's chilly here in Aberdeen today, no sign of the beautiful sunshine that we had all last week but that just means more time indoors to craft.
Today is my last week as guest designer for Charisma Cardz :( Two weeks has went flying past but I have really enjoyed the challenges the girls set and look forward to joining them again sometime *wink wink*.
This weeks challenge is to alter something. Now I have not really altered much except a few old boxes so I took the easy option and altered an old gift box that I keep some of my crafty bits and bobs in.

I used a Sugar nellie image that I got as a RAK and the papers are all freebie downloads from Summer Driggs. Edited to add link for Stef :) You can find all Summers kits on her blog summertime designs. They are all free and she has loads of beautiful papers and digital embelishments. I had already covered the box and was going to use another paper from from the same set for the lid but Chiara decided that she would help me and insisted that I used yellow paper! At least she picked one from the same digi set though so it looks ok, but not what I would have picked myself. It was easier to just go with it than argue with a 4 year old who knows what she wants though! So I coloured my image red and yellow to co ordinate with the lid.
I then wrapped some lace round the lid and stuck on large Prima from Aries Crafts and layered with some punched flowers from the scraps of paper I had left over and a large spacer.

There was quite a breeze when I took this photo and just noticed that one of the petals are turned up. Oh well nothing I can do about it now.
I can't wait to see what everyone makes for this challenge!

Hugs Lora xx
