GDT FitzTown Midway Metal Challenge Inspiration

Another good morning to you all! 

Firstly thank again so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave comments. 

Secondly I'd like to apologise for not visiting your blogs in the past few days, it's due to personal reasons and health problems , I am so sorry but I promise I will visit sometime today! 

Today is my turn for some inspiration for the FitzTown Challenge Blog with their current challenge of creating anything as long as it has metal on it. 

I really hope you join us for our challenge. 
You can enter your projects here: 

I have used these two adorable digi stamps which came together called The last Enchanter le2
and you can find them here: 

I coloured them using my Pro Markers and decided to make an origami box which you can make by following this tutorial: 

 I decided i liked the look of the couple's face's and their expressions so i used this sentiment as I thought it just fit perfectly with the image. Lol. 

I used DP , lace , handmade Bows, spellbinders rose die to create those beautiful flowers and other die cuts from spellbinders layered on top of each other for the lid. 

The DP Paper for the Spellbinders Roses were all snippets I had lying around and not being used so thought this was a great opportunity to have a go at playing at the playground once again.  Why not hop on over and let go of your wild side and remember the fun in the playground like when we were younger and enter your creations into the Pixies Crafty Workshop.  Link is below.

The sentiment I got from online and layered on a spellbinders die cut. 
The purple flower buds on the lid are from my crafty stash. 

I love making these boxes I think they are just so pretty!
