The Sisterhood & Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!
Again today I am combining challenges in my effort to get caught up from being away last week.  

Today we have a new challenge over at The Sisterhood and it is "Anything But A Card".   We are going to be "mixing it up" a bit at the Sisterhood with some fun new challenge ideas so be sure to stop in each week and check 'em out.  Here is what I created today:

As I said, this creation covers two challenges ... the second one is the Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge which is all about "Birthdays".    What better gift for a birthday (at least for the ladies) than a beautiful trinket box filled with chocolates!!

This was a plain brown box from the $1 bin at Michael's and after rummaging through my designer papers, I decided this K&Co. Ancestry paper was exactly what I had in mind.  The image is from the Crafty Secrets *new* Seasonal Booklet and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  The beautiful silk ribbon & lace were an RAK from Joan at Joan's Gardens.  Joan has a supply of GORGEOUS ribbons and this May Arts silk is just so beautiful!  My sentiment stamp is by Impression Obsession.

Thanks to you all for stopping by and showing me support!  I love creating and sharing it with you!  Here's wishing you a fun-filled happy day!!  Catch you later ... it's back to work for now!!

Hugs to you all!
