Welcome to the first of two posts today!
It's time for another challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie challenge blog.

The time the challenge is:
Use Wings
And Petals
And Pink!

There are other challenges that this project will be entered into as well :

Swirl - Sizzix
Medium - Copic Markers
Glitter - Stickles
Sentiment - Design Originals
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Pearls - Martha Stewart
Pearls and Rhinestones _ Queen and Co
Rose - Wild Orchid Crafts
Box template - My own design

Here you can see the "Pearls and Swirls"

This fairy is so gorgeous and once I'd colored her I added Stickles to give her true Fairy Finesse!
I'd seen Gable Boxes on other peoples blogs but couldn't find a scoring template so I designed my own. There were Cut files for the Cricut, Printable templates but none with just the "plans" and it took 3 attempts and lots of stamping of feet to get the right measurements but I wasn't giving up! LOL
I hope you like my project and I'd love you to check out the challenge at Cooking It Up With Katie and join in!
