Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More .
We have been having some much welcome sunshine in my little corner of the world and my favourite magnolia tree is just about to bloom. This magnificent tree flowers beautifully for up to a couple of weeks and then nearly always gets hit by a late frost and winds that strip the flowers. It never says 'I'm fed up with this, I don't think I'll bother flowering this year', but just plods on regardless and brings such pleasure to all who pass by, certain that the brief beauty it brings makes it all worthwhile. Deep eh?
Anyway ... we have our die cuts and stencil theme this time and I used both in my little creation:-
I made a combined card/gift card holder for some friends who recently moved house. I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat box and after I had die cut it, I stenciled the bricks on to create the walls.
Once I had assembled the box, I used a variety of die sets to cut the trees, bushes and fence. The finishing touch was the tag which I stamped with a Papertrey Ink sentiment.
As always, you'll find lots of inspiration over on the ATSM blog, and you can link up your entry over there.
I'd like to play along at
Thanks for stopping by.
