Inky Impressions meets By The Cute and Girly and a card for a Princess

It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge at By The Cute and Girly!
The challenge is easy peasy this week because it's "Anything Goes", so of course I had to do some girly stuff :)

First of all is a card I made for my Daughter Chiara's birthday which was at the start of April.
As thsi is a real girly card, I am entering it into the Crafters Companion challenge where they want to see Girly Cards and a am also entering it into A Spoon Full Of Sugar where the challenge is "A right royal knees up" thought it fitted the theme well since I used a Princess :)

 The image is a kids colouring page that I got online for my girls a while ago and of course I coloured her with Promarkers and added some diamond stickles for some sparkle.
Can't remember where the paper came from because I made this a month ago lol. The flowers are Primas except the rose which is from Hobbycraft, ribbon is some from my stash, sentiment I done on the computer and the doilie was  alarge rectangle one which I just cut a border from.

My other DT make is a paper mache box that I covered and decorated. I have never altered a box like this before, only ever done the tiny little ones, so this was a first for me, but I had fun doing it :)
I have a few pics of this, so sorry if I bore you lol. I am entering this box into the Crafts 4 Eternity challenge where anything goes.

 The paper is by Papermania and as I had a whole pack of the same paper, it came in handy because I used 4 or 5 A4 sheets for this box!

I have used LiLi's Prayer again by Inky Impressions and coloured her with Promarkers as usual.
This is such a pretty image and can be used for so many different occasions.
The flourish is from a We R Memory Keepers adhesive rub on pack and is covered with brown flock which comes with the set.....very pretty and you just want to reach out and touch it because it looks so soft :)

The flowers are mostly from but unfortunately they are disscontinued :( but you can find loads of other goodies in the Janlynn store.
The big roses and the lacey ribbon stuff are from Hobbycraft and the little brown rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and that gorgeous butterfly is from geraldine's Etsy Store- Little Snippets, where you can find all sorts of embroidered and crotchet embellishments including butterflies in different sizes, designs and colours. They just add a special touch to any project and I love this design in particular because you can stick down the body and keep the wings up.

 A pile of half pearls from my stash....think they were bought on Ebay, and the scalloped oval shaped die cuts are from Die Cut Dreams.
  Finally a view of the bottom (promise this is the last photo! lol). I used some ribbon from my stash all around the lid and added a little organza bow with a heart attached to hide wher ethe ribbon joins. Think I got the bow thing from Ebay about 2 years ago, but can't be sure as I've had them for ages.

Sorry if that was way too  much pictures and I have sent you off to sleep! if you ahve made it to the end of this post, you deserve a medal! :) lol

I hope you will join in with this months challennge at By The Cute and Girly, and just a reminder that the challeneg over at the Inky Impressions challenge blog this fortnight is Flourish and Faux.
