Engagement Card

 Here's my first project since re-doing my craft room, and I must say that taking a break for 3 weeks or so definitely did a number on my creativity. But I finally got it done.  It's a *book box* engagement card for a young couple in our congregation.

 A closer look at the front

 From the side

The inside. 
You could add a little gift or gift card in here.

What I used.......
The papers are Recollections *My Favourite Things*
The flower and sentiment are digi images
Ribbon from Michael's.
Butterfly and lacy edge punch are Martha Stewart.
Gems from the dollar store.
A video for instructions and measurements can be found *here*

Did you notice that the first couple of pictures have a pinkish tone to them.  I took these without using my Ott light..... for the last ones I did use it, makes quite a difference to the actual colour, which is the ones taken with the Ott light.

Thanks for stopping by,

Gorgeous Babs! What a great idea! I know what you mean about not crafting for a few weeks then no creativity. I sat in my craft room for a few hours yesterday and finally got into it for a minute today, but had to stop, so we will see if I can get the flow back! You certainly did. I bet working in your new room is wonderful! I love your new space!
