For my blog hop creation I used ...... Valerie and Kittie Sitting to create an easel card gift box. The sentiment is from the newly released Spring Seals collection which I framed in the Fancy tags label die (It says friends are flowers that never fade.)The image is colored with copics.  The designer paper is from my most treasured Prima pack- Madeline except for the drawer lining which is Stampin Up retired paper. The bow is tied with the bow easy and uses Rose Silk Ribbon. Since this project has so many sides and details, I am including a few different pictures.









I hope you enjoyed my creation today and are inspired in some way.
