Pink Bokeh

I was at my daughters' at the Weekend and spotted a well known make of tissue box on the table which happened to be just what I needed to make this card so I nabbed it! (I did ask first).  The design on the box was Bokeh and the plain pink paper has a Bokeh design on it too. Perfect for the challenge I had in mind. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together and don't look a gift horse in the mouth as the saying goes.
The design papers are both from 'The Works'. The leaf die is by Die-namics Royal Leaves and I used a five petal Woodware punch for the roses.
I simply cut the top from the tissue box which already had the oval aperture in it( I have saved the sides and flaps for another time) and back it with the pretty rose design paper. The pearls for the centre of the roses and the silver glitter sentiment were from my stash.

Entering into the following challenges:

Isn't it nice to recycle an item into something so pretty as your card..
You did a great job turning the top of the issue box as your focus on the card Well done Mrs. A
I have a box full of panels and tops from issue boxes they do come in handy.
Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.

Donna Ellis said...

What a genius idea, ValeryAnne! I've considered using the tissue boxes before, but never got around to it. NEVER did I consider using the top, however, with the natural aperture in it! LOVE IT! Your pink and green combination is one of my all-time favorite color combinations. It's a beautiful creation. Thanks for sharing! hugs, de

Great card and a super find with the tissue box! I'd love a pound for every one of those same boxes that have gone into the recycling bin. Sigh. Hope that shoulder is coming along OK.
