Charisma Cardz DT - Match Master

Morning Folks!! Here's hoping that today's weather is gonna be as lovely as yesterdays, blue skies and feeling a lot warmer! Today is a brand new challenge for you over at Charisma Cardz and this week, as chosen by the lovely Alie, the theme is "Match Master". We would like to see you making something that matches, like a card and envelope or like I've done with a little gift box (suitcase) or anything else that you fancy, there are loads of possibilities.
I have coloured my image in with Copics and used Tim Holtz's Idea-ology paper pack. The doily behind my image is from Joanna Sheen and I have used distress ink around the edges. The pearls are from my dear friend Paola, thanks girlfriend, and I've used a bazzill basics template to create the swirl which I learnt from Bev Rochester quite a while back, thanks Hun! All my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the swirl beneath them is a Marianne Die.

My little suitcase is from a template that Magnolia-licious had on their blog for the September challenge and I've been dying to try it but have not had the opportunity until now lol! Also decorated with Tim's papers, the ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flower from Wild Orchid. The tag is a Magnolia doo hickey which arrived yesterday morning, just in time to go with my project and the swirl is again a Marianne Die. Again I have used distress ink around the suitcase and the tag. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :

Inky Impressions - Flowers

Just Magnolia - Think Pink

Magnolia Down Under - All Aboard - Travel themed project

Totally Tilda - Pink & Pearls

Wild Orchid - Pastels

Paper Pretties - Square

Stamp & Create - Pink (breast cancer awareness)

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to check out the challenge blog for some fab inspiration from the design team and then enter your own creation. Hope you have a great day! Lotsa luv xxxxxx
