Waltzingmouse August Release - Sneak Peek Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks -  did you just LOVE all the nautical inspiration yesterday??!  Yikes! those stamps are SO fun to work with!

Today we have 3 lovely floral sets to show you -  2-Step Flowers, Funky Flowers, and Simple Sprig.

First up I made a funky little garden box using Funky Flowers!
I took a plain old 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" paper mache box and covered it with Foil Tape Sheets that I had embossed with a Wicker Weave folder.  After I adhered it to the box (it has a sticky back) I 'aged' it by rubbing black Alcohol Ink over it.
I tied a stitched grosgrain ribbon around it and tied a little metal trowel charm to the knot.  The For My Friend sentiment is from Vintage Garden Seed Packet from the August 2012  release
I placed a rectangle of colorful floral patterned paper on the bottom of the inside of the box just to dress it up
Next I made a card using the pretty leaf stem from Simple Sprig and one of the two step blooms from 2-Step Flowers.  (The sentiment is from a set we'll be showing you tomorrow!)  Look at how beautiful this bloom is!

I'm putting this card in the Cas(e) this Sketch challenge - (I got it in JUST before the deadline!)

I'm dying to see what the rest of the Design Team made using these wonderful sets -  here are the links to their blogs:
 Claire Brennan
