#66 Spots and Stripes for Totally Tilda

Morning everyone,
Well, I guess you all loved the Valentine's theme as much as I did judging by the extremely high level of work entered into Totally Tilda's last challenge! Check to see if you were one of our handpicked Top3 or the winner this time. Now I'd better tell you about our brand new
Totally Tilda 
challenge which is 
Spots and Stripes 
and as you know by now Tilda's got to be the main image on your card/project.

This week I decorated a book box and kept it fairly neutral so it could be given as a gift for any occasion.
The Tilda's were coloured using distress inks, I added stardust stickles to the hem of her dress and the flower centre but you can't see that very well and I used my pearl maker that the lovely Susie gave me (thanks sweetie!) although I think I need a bit of practice with it so don't look too closely lol!

On the inside I made the left hand side recess into the space for a written message. I made a lid for the right hand side with an acetate window behind 'Tilda loves Flowers'

Under the lid I partitioned the recess to put embellies in.

Book Box
Magnolia DooHickey stitched scalloped lace border and sweet lovely lace border
SU zigzag stitch stamp
TH clock hand die
Spellbinder nestie labels nine and foliage
everything else is from my stash

We are lucky to be sponsored by Pretty Little Ribbon Shop for this challenge
The pretty little ribbon

Bunny Zoes - Flowers and pearls
Marvelous Magnolias - Floral Bonanza

Thanks for popping by and visiting my blog today, can't wait to see what gorgeous creations are made for this challenge! If you have time take a look at my teamies beautiful work over at Totally Tilda for further inspiration. 
Have a great week and I will be back next week for my Totally Tilda midway post with more spots and stripes!
