Gruffies and Guest Challenge Blog - March 2016 - Anything goes or the option of "flowers"

 Today it is time for me to show you another card for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.

 The topic for March 2016 is "anything goes with the option of flowers".

As mentioned last month there are going to be no sponsors for the Gruffies and Guests Challenge Blog.  Instead members of the Design Team will be offering prizes.
Lesley is sponsoring March's challenge and her prize will be a a rubber stamp and butterfly embellishments.  Now who wouldn't want to win that?
 I have made a card for a special aunt and also decorated a box as well as it was going to be hand delivered.  I have used this sunflower image from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse Triple CD as it is one of my favourites.  I printed off two of the design sheets so I could use the images to decoupage as well as to decorate the box.  I have used the gorgeous muted sunflowers backing paper from the CD as well.

I have finished the card off with some ribbons, die-cut sentiment, button, lace, gems and a gorgeous sunflower that I made myself.
I have finished the decorated box off with some gorgeous wood and cork backing papers that I got for Christmas, gems, sentiment off the design sheet from the CD and ribbon.

Kym, this card and decorated box are the loveliest works of art I have seen in a long time. The wee house mouse twins napping in the sunflower are adorable. The layouts are sweet. Thank you so much for entering your creative and beautiful art in our AG FF challenge.
