Treasure Chest and Card

A friend from work asked me to make a card that would match her "treasure chest" that she bought for her mother-in-law's 80th suprise birthday bash, my friend bought a purple scarf and some "Jewels" to dress up the "treasure chest",she is going to use for all the "cash" gifts given at the birthday party instead of a "money tree", which I thought was a wonderful Idea. She wanted the card to be a pirate themed card to go with treasure chest, so I made this cute card for her Chest and she loved it, just thought I would share with all of you :)

These are some cute cards I made for Allyce's Birthday that I am putting in her notecard box (see below photos) that I "altered" to coordinate with the box I bought at TJMax as a gift/storeage box for her card making treasures.

Allyce's Birthday Gift

I bought this larger box (top photo)at TJMax for Allyce's (my granddaughter's) 12th birthday as a gift/storeage box for her card making supplies that I bought her, she has taken an interest in scrapbooking and card making, I bought the smaller box to "alter" (middle photos)to coordinate with the bigger box, this I made as a notecard box so that Allyce could put her notecards and treasures in, I used scrapbook paper in black and white, glued a pink ribbon on as well, I made a "stacked" paper flower with the same scrapbook paper and a daisy punch and "stacked" with dimensionals in between, I finished flower off with a small pink "sticker" flower and added a small pearl, (isn't that a mouth full :0)) I really enjoyed making the note card box to (kind of) match, and the bottom photo show's some of the emblishments that I bought for Allyce's card making fun.
