Jeanne's Pressie

Here's Jeanne's Pressie as promised.
 Last Thursday one of the Unconvention Challenges was to make this Peek-a-Boo Box.
It is a very tiny box, I loved making it.
 My next Dilemma was what can I give here that would fit inside it.
 I have used Faux Linen Technique again, I'm enjoying this at the moment.
 The butterfly on top of the box I have embossed using nail filing dust from Not Quite Navy mixed with Clear Embossing Powder on Glossy Cardstock. I was very pleased with the results.
 Here's the inside of the box, I have stamped the butterfly in Early Espresso.
Back to my dilemma.
I decided to make a Cameo Brooch, I used a Level 1 Hostess Set 'Silhouette Sentiments'.
I made this gift them made her card which you can view HERE.
Jeanne was thrilled to receive her gift and card.
 I went over to check out what this weeks challenge over at Try Stampin' on Tuesdays and found out that I was one of the top 3 picks.

Two out of the three cards were from New Zealand, Sharna sent her winning entry to me, aren't I the lucky one, go to my last post to view.

I wonder if you might have time to explain some of the stamping techniques to me at some time- I have such a lot to learn ! I know your blog posts will be a joy to read. I love the blue box- it's just stunning. God Bless ! Mary.
