Wedding Card Box and 2 Challenges

I still have to personalise the wedding card box ... silly me ran out of A4 silver mirri card ... but it's as good as finished so thought I'd show you before it gets sent off.
It was made using a sheet of silver mirri card for the base and a sheet of double sided card forms the lid because I thought a mirri card lid might be a bit overpowering.
The edge of the lid was scalloped using a corner punch with the guide removed and then I added some sparkly decorative lace around the sides and knotted some pink satin ribbon for decoration.
Sorry the sparkle isn't showing in the photo but trust me, it looks lovely.

The 2 heart shapes were cut freehand from the remnants of that gorgeous floral embossed paper and they have been mounted onto silver mirri card and cut out leaving a narrow border. Silicon glue has been used to attach them.

The Pink Elephant Challenge #25 is a sketch this week and I can see me using this layout a lot 'cos it's so easy to follow.
The image and sentiment are free digi downloads from Whimsie Doodles ... don't you just love that cute wee face?
I've used Sakura Pens for colouring and they have a lovely subtle sparkle effect when dry.
A black fineliner was perfect for the doodling and 'faux stitching' with teeny weeny Making Memories brads and Prima flowers adding the decoration.

Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #10 is to use a digi image so this fits in perfectly and I must admit that I've amazed myself for managing to combine challenges this week, 'cos I usually find this very difficult.

Wow brilliant work Max - love your take on the sketch and your box for the wedding is just scrummy.
Your faux stitching is spot on - whenever I try that it goes wrong somehow.
