Anything but a card at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, well its Friday again thank goodness and time for a new challenge over at Crafty Ann's where our theme this time around is 'Anything but a card'. I love to make jewellery so this was a perfect chance! My super talented teamies have come up with some stunning project so make sure you check them out. Don't forget that our lucky winner will receive a generous prize from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop too.

I've created a pendant using Crafty Ann's beautiful Champagne flower from the Cream Dream collection. It was really quick and easy to make, I attached the glass cabochon with glossy accents and trimmed to size once it was dry before attaching a glue on bale with more glossy accents. I've added some gold organza ribbon  instead of a chain as I thought it would complement the delicate flower nicely.

To make the gift box, i used a fab freebie template from Craft Stamper magazine, printed onto card and painted with gold acrylic paint. I then printed out one of the papers from Crafty Ann's 'Cream Dream' collection and used the template to cut out panels to cover the box. I added some gold dew drops as feet for the box and another of the Champagne flower on top. The box opens with a little ribbon tab. The colours on this pic are appalling - for some reason everything has a blue tinge and the ribbon tag looks white when its more or less the same colour as the ribbon on the pendant, i really must learn how to use my camera lol.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Anything goes challenge: anything but a card
Corrosive Challenge: Another dimension
