Another 3D make!

Good evening to everyone in blogland, I can hardly believe it's nearly the end of January, where did that month just go? I've just finished another 3D project, a box to put little cards in. I got the idea for the box from my Stampin Up friend Bridgette, and just had to do more! The trickiest bit was the curled paper on my flower, it took a couple of attempts. I'm still not totally happy with the band around the box but dont know why so I gave up trying to think of ways to change it in the end. Only had time to finish two cards to put inside but may do more at a later date.
Challenges that inspired me this week are: Crafts 4 Eternity - Recipe Number 3, String, flower, button
Totally Scrumptious - Pink, brown, green

I used: SU Stampin Around-so swirly, flower stamp from Simply said set, sentiment from Circle of Friendship set
blossom nestabilities
papers, cardstock, brad, buttons, and string from stash

Thanks as always for stopping by and for the comments, you're all so lovely

Reading what people have put is great too, its like inviting everyone round to swap stories! Anyway, I am waffling now, so I'll just get on with showing my card for this week.....
The following challenges inspired me:

New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year to one and all and hope you are well, there are a lot of nasty bugs and colds doing the rounds. I always make new year resolutions and within a week they are all broken but this time I am determined to keep up to a few. There are a few crafting ones, most importantly to complete more projects and post more frequently! Another is to comment more often on my friends blogs. We shall see how long I can keep going! My project this week was making a card and 3D gift set and tied it in with the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge- card and matching 3D gift
Crafts 4 Eternity sketch
SPCC- colour combo; Rich Razzleberry (purple), Regal Rose (pink), Tempting Turquoise

I used: Cricut embossing folder:-stylized flowers
SU 'Happy moments' sentiment and caged bird stamps
cardstock and ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and I love reading your comments, they are what keep me going!
Hugs from Nicola xxx
