Polka Doodles Challenge 22



Can't seem to get out of christmas mode, so when I saw the fabby sketch at Polkadoodles it was screaming at me 'Gift Box' although it's taken me all week to come up with colours, papers etc. but when my 'Next' christmas catalogue came through the door, the colour combo was sorted - lime and emerald green with silver and white. 

For the box I used some satin silver card and stamped on some swirls with white stazon.  For the flower and wrap I used lime green cardstock stamped on some flourishes with silver and emerald green ink, then put it through the cuttlebug with the mesh embossing folder. 
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post, all three cards are growing on me now.  As my hubby always says, 'You're too damn fussy!' and he should know! ;)x
Paper and card: Paper Mill Shop
Stamps:  Rhonna Farrer
Ink: Encore metallic silver; Stazon white cotton; Colorbox emerald green.
