Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #5

OMGOSH its just soooooo exciting I have been lucky enough to be given a new Lil Lolita Fashionette, you know all the new ones that got released last week at Tickled Pink Stamps..... Gosh aren't they just so Fantastic??  Well I love them and I can't wait to have them all in Rubbah!!!!  You better rush on over to the Tickled Pink Stamps shop and pre-order your today!!

Today is Challenge day at Lil Lolita Boutique and this week we want you to use:


Cool Huh? another easy one!!  So you can use as much or as little ribbon as you like, go for it, can't wait to see what you all make:-) and Guess what Kellie has kindly offered a PRIZE WOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO now get crackin' :-) 

Ok time for Pic's - there's 4 .... I've made my niece, Kirsty, a 18th Birthday Card and a matching Card Box!!! I've never made a card box before and it was fun, even if the first one ended up in the bin...gggrrrrr.  I've used my Fashionette, Miss Evie, straight from 1920!!  So because Miss Evie is kinda a bit Vintage looking, I've made another modern vintage card using some really yummy Graphic 45 papers that I got from USA last week (in the mail of course!!! - just a little bit too far to go!!!)

This one below is the actual card, I've used Pink Velvet Ribbon along the bottom with the blingy clasp for that bit extra VA VA VOOM along with the feathers and the pearl spray!! I love the fashion lady paper that I used in the ovals.... so appropriate don't you think??
I am really please with how my card and box turned out.  I think it's even better than what I dreamed up!!

Ok this is the inside, yeah I actually prettied up the inside!!! But it is a special card after all!!!

And this one is of the Card Box.  Its basically the same except I've coloured my Evie in Pink instead of Brown like what's on the front of the card, just so its a little tiny bit different. 

Kirsty has already received my card and box and she totally loved it!!  Thank goodness it look me ages:-) We also gave her a Pandora Wooden Charm, very spectacular, and she loved that too!!
