Oh, what a site Anne had for us today! I have needed something special for a friend dear to my heart, and today, I saw it! Using this lovely wreath as inspiration, I made a bloomin' box for my friend and a lil card to match. Oh what a mess I made too! Lol, blooms everywhere! (thanks to Tosh & Sue for their gifts of paper flowers!) Anne, thank you for this IC challenge, I had a blast!
The heart shaped box is from HL, and I sponged SU White Craft ink before gluing the flowers, and the lid also has a small lace trim, altho I do believe that is not visible any longer! I kinda get outta control with flowers.....
Thanks for looking!

Oh wow! Your box is so beautiful! What a wonderful way to use paper flowers. The simplicity of your card makes it so delicate and feminine. My goodness, what will next week bring to your gallery! :-) Hugs!

Wow - this is gorgeous! Looks like something that a girl named Blooms-in-a-box would make! LOL! I don't think I have seen a prettier box....actually that WWW man box you made for Cindy was pretty cool... but this is up there on a high level like a billion or bazillion or something like that. Great stuff my friend! Hugz!
