Birthday Card and Altered Box

Hello friends and happy Thursday. I can't believe it's nearly the weekend already. The weeks seem to go by so fast these days. I made this card and box set for a dear friend's birthday using gorgeous Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe papers and chipboard accents. The stamp is Fancy Anya from The Greeting Farm. Lots of distressing and inking on this one. I also glimmer-misted the flower which started out white and sponged some ink in the centre too. I am really into playing with twine at the moment both the natural and pretty mixed colour ones too.

Altered Giftbox.

My friend loved that I had added the "B" which is the first initial of her name.
Very personal she said.

Thanks so much for looking. I will have some layouts to share with you soon and of course a Mother's Day card made especially for my beautiful Mum. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.
