Week 204 Anything but a Card-

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope that this finds you all well and enjoying the start of a lovely weekend,

This week at Allsorts it is Anything But a Card and I have a couple of designs to show you as I couldn't make my mind up which one to show you.

The first one is a decorated box which I painted first with acrylic paint and then covered it with a few different Kaiser Craft papers.  I used one of the Grand labels dies to use as a backdrop for the perfume bottles from House of Zandra.  A Tattered Floral flower and a Crafts Too swirl finished off this project.

I also would like to show you this really quick but pretty project 

This is just a plain paper bag that I decorated with Kaiser Craft papers as a background and Spellbinder swirls and flowers to add dimension. Buttons finished off the flowers.

Please pop over to the Assorts Challenge Blog to check out the other Design Team members work - it is all stunning.
Enjoy the rest of a lovely weekend and hope that you can find a few minutes to pop a comment in so that I can see what you think to my Anything but a Card! 
Bye for now
