Creative Inspirations Templates challenge

This fortnight at Creative Inspirations we're focusing on Templates - make any creative project as long as it has been made with a Template. Our sponsor is Regina from the Cutting Cafe. Who has kindly sponsored the winner's prize of 3 sets of their choice from the website.

I used a pillow box template with a frame cut-out from our sponsor and made a joy fold card to go alongside it, both of these techniques were new to me but then that's what these challenges are all about isn't it!! The paper I used is from DCWV Cafe Mediterranean, I really love the rich colours and the floral designs in this stack. The ribbon was recycled from some packaging and the lace came from Hobbycraft. I also made a gift tag to go alongside the set but Neil has gone off with the camera so I can't take a pic at the moment - may add it later.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Emma - Flowers and flutterbys
Crazy 4 Challenges - Flowers
Secret Crafter - Sweet treats 
Shannon's Sentiments - Fussy cutting 
Sugar Creek Hollow - Finish inside and outside of your card 
Crafty Catz - Create something for a friend 
Simply Create - Bold & bright 
Stamp Something - Something with flowers
Paper Romance - Anything goes
Rubber Cafe  - Fun folds
