This is for the IC featuring the website Hard to Find. Good gracious they sell a ton of things! I selected the gold silk flower here: https://www.hardtofind.com.au/produc...7D-Brooch.html and set off to make an anniversary note box for one of my customers celebrating their 21st anniversary in business next week.
I absolutely adored Peggy's card from last week here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=247615. So I set about casing it the best I could with the supplies that I have. I used currency Neena Classic Linen Pearlescent card stocks in gold and cream. Sponged with Brilliance Galaxy Gold, frosted a Petaloo flower heavily with diluted Frost White All Purpose Ink. The papers are actually very shimmery!
Thanks for the inspiration to both Anne and Peggy. Hope you like it and thanks for looking.
PT: 6 on the top of the box; 14 in total
