No patterned paper!

Sherry1 The Artygirlz challenge this week was no patterned paper. The guest designer is Sandy and I love her work so I thought I would give it a go!

We have a wedding tomorrow and with so many young couples these days, they have already set up home together, so their pressie list is money!Sherry2

So instead of shoving a cheque in a plain old card I thought I would make an exploding box ... quite amazing what you can do with a couple of pieces of white bazzill, a Bigshot and some mirri card is n't it?

I used Dan's template from a few weeks ago. If you have n't checked them out yet ... you must ... another new one will be out tomorrow ... and they are free!

sherry3 I have decorated the top with a silver embossed flower from the Stitchels range. I was going to decorate the insides with Stitchels flowers too ... but I ended up really liking the understated effect I got with the Cuttlebug wotsit thingy!

Keep your fingers crossed that it does n't rain until we are all safely tucked away in the reception!

Have fun everyone with whatever you are doing!
