CCAYR March challenge: anything but a card

This is my card for Christmas cards all year round March challenge: anything but a card. I'm in the Christmas Belles group so we are posting here today - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Belles group. The Gingerbread gals posted at the beginning of March here - please have a look at their lovely designs and join in our challenge there. (Apologies to my teamies that I was late in adding my creation, which is why this is being blogged the day after the challenge reminder went live).

I downloaded the lovely svg freebie from Dreaming tree called Christmas treats gift box, cutting with my Scan n Cut using various papers, mainly from DCWV, some glitter washi tape and a luscious red bow that's been in a box from ages (upcycled from something received).

The top of the box can be opened and the Christmas tree could be written on:

Penny's challenge 320

This is my design card for Penny's challenge 320, where the theme is 'anything goes'. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in with your entries.

I used Delicious Doodles crocus and butterfly frame kindly supplied by Delicious Doodles as one of the sponsors of the challenge. I coloured with spectrum noir pens, using a spectrum cosmos glitter pen to highlight some of the petals (unfortunately, this doesn't show in the photo). After cutting out by hand, this was mounted on to a piece of card from a Tattered Lace magazine and mounted on to the purple card blank, adding the Happy Easter peel off.
