Tsunami Rose Parisian Daydream Book Box and love letters

 Here is my 1st project for this month for Tsunami Rose Designs 
this is a lovely kit and I had great fun playing 
for my project I made a book box
and love letters
 I made a book box and a love letters folder I loved using these papers. I stained the edges of the book box with walnut stain distress inks and then distressed all the papers. I added one of the Eiffel Tower printed embellishments from the kit and the Parisian plate to the front of the book box I used trim for the edge of the spine to match the colour theme. I then blinged up the edge of the front of the box and a Paris bling. I then used. 1franc cut out which fitted into a bottle lid perfectly and added glossy accents over the top. For the love letters I used the large pocket front the kit egded it with bling and flowers, then added a key to the lace ribbon closure inside the love letter pocket I popped the larger and smaller Journal postcards to add journaling to. Then I popped 3 tags into the lace ribbon.

 For the inside of the box I used some of the cutout elements of the kit to line the bottom of the box and one of the little fans in the middle so cute

Natalie and Amys Challenge Love is all alround

Hi Here is my  Card for this months challenge over at 

Natalie and Amys Challenge blog

The Theme for this month is

Love is all  Around

my card is a bit simpler than  normally so and  used no embellish as the papers I chose would have been spoilt so I went for using the best in the papers

I thought this would be great for a valentines birthday card for the older lady 
so the paper I used was 
First Addition Rose Garden
I used 2 sheets and cut out the rose and layer it with silicon glue then I used Diamond Stickles
I then added a sentiment from the Whimsy stamps Birthdays 2 set 
and matted it onto a scolloped circle
and that is that I hope you like my birthday Valentine Card
