Happiness In A Box

It is the time of the year when we have lots of celebrations in the family and today many schools in Stockholm close for the summer not to open again until mid-August. The city is inundated with happy children and young adults dressed in their summer best. 

Ah! I can remember that bubbly feeling thinking of a looong summer ahead. Still do!

For one of the birthdays earlier in May, I made a card and a matching gift box.

Here's first the card;

 Papers used are Swedish Maja Design from my stash.

The flowers and leaves are from my stash of
Prima blooms. I see Lyric, Princess, Rondelle and some other
collections represented in the cluster.
Have to say I find the most fabulous things in that Prima stash!
The flowers have all been sprinkled in Prima Glass 
Beads in Crystal.

Next the gift box that was made in the same colours and with the same papers as the card;

All 4 sides were masked, misted and stamped looking slightly 
different from the next.
 And here's the lid propped up on the side.

Again, Prima blooms from my stash.
The die-cut bubbles/rings are by Memory Box.

I have another canvas sitting on my desk waiting for
 the finishing touches.
I will share it with you next time.

 Till then - hip hip for summer, strawberries and
ice cold glasses of Chardonnay or why not rosé!

Thank you for taking the time to pop by!

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila
