New Challenge #2 at Open-Minded Crafting Fun

So sorry,
This posting is a little late.

I had it all set up and ready to go,
but you know (as you do)
you end up saving it instead of publishing it,
and always when you are away from home
and unable to access proper Internet.

Anyways this week has been a very good one,
and I have had some great News.
To start with I would like to congratulate
my Sister and Brother-in-Law
on the birth of their beautiful little Girl on the 9th.
I just can't wait to have a big hug with my new Niece Evie.

Also on the 10th
(on the other side of the Family,
my Brother and Sister-in-Law)
I get to wish my Nephew Samuel a Happy 2nd Birthday.
I just can't believe how quick the time has gone,
it still only feels like he was just born as well.

My Project this
week is:-
Cupido Digi Stamp
from Zuri Artsy Craftsy


To begin with I used a Sheet of A4 Pearlised White Card
I then cut it out using the Box-In-A-Box Template
which I used from Papercraft Inspirations
(Issue 148)
 and then followed all the steps to make the Box.
I can't believe how easy this was to make.

To decorate the Box I used Glitter Heart Paper, 
Glitter Flower Paper and Striped Paper,
all from the Forever Love A5 Paper Pack.
(Forever Friends - Docrafts)
And for the plain card I used Dusky Rose Card

Next I printed off the Image 
on White DC Paper
And coloured it in using my Promarker Pens.
Antique Pink
Cool Aqua
Burnt Sienna
Cool Grey 1
Cool Grey 2
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 4
Metallic Gold

I then fussy cut him out and 
added Crystal Glamour Dust
(Deco Art)
to his Wings, Hair and the Arrow Heart.
I also added Glossy Accents
to his Eyes.
then I attached Him to the Front of the Box.

For the Top of the Box I used my Brother Scan and Cut,
and using a piece of the Pearlise White Card I cut a
'With Love Always Heart' 
(Tattered Lace - No 1 Flowers and Foliage)
I then made a 'Posy' using 2 Medium Pale Pink Paper Roses
and 1 of each Small Mid Pink, Dark Pink and White Paper Roses.
(all from The Range)
Backed with a Medium White Leaf.

Finally for my finishing touch
I went around each of the sides and added
 4mm Pale Pink Glitter Gems to each corner.
And to the top I put one Gem in the opposite corner 
to the Flower Posy.
And on the Lid that was left plain
I added 3 in each of the corners in a triangle shape.
