Tilda + Co Wishing You Well Challenge
The challenge at Tilda + Co this week is to make a card or a gift for someone who is feeling under the weather or is ill at the moment. As you may know Donna has hurt her back so I'd like to wish her a speedy recovery.
I have made a gift box for flowers using a wooden crate which originally held 6 little bottles of Prima flowers. I have stamped the Magnolia images and coloured them with Prismacolors and Sansador and then stuck them onto the crate. I printed the greeting off the PC using a Lisa Bearnson font and then attached it to a piece of wooden doweling. Finally I lined the crate with hessian and a small piece of plastic to stop the water escaping!
