DT box for Dream Valley Challenge 10

It's time for another Dream Valley Challenge and this fortnight's theme is Ribbons



Our sponsor is Crafty Ribbons and the prize is a fabulous New Bev's Ribbon Bag!

Be warned, there are several pictures to follow!

I needed to make a box to send a card to a friend that used a Tickled Pink stamp, Lil Victorian Steampunk Lolita Evie. In keeping with the Victorian idea, on the lid of the box I was going to do just the image, frame and ribbon to look like a picture on the wall of a Victorian room, but I got a bit carried away with the ornamentation!



The fantastic papers are a download from Bearly Mine Designs 'Vintage' set.

Here's the box at an angle so you can see the ribbon tie at the front.



And here's the inside.



I added a piece of raffia ribbon to the front, and die-cut a Marianne butterfly. The flowers are from stash, and they're sitting on a Magnolia Doohickey flower die, and the swirl is also Magnolia. The pearls in the top corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So that's my contribution this fortnight! Buzz over to Dream Valley to look at my teamies' creations, and it would be lovely if you could join in!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink, Caramel, Cocoa, Henna, Lavender, Orchid, Amethyst, Mulberry
