Simon Says Challenge - Make Your Own Embellishment !

Well, here we are again, it's Wednesday already and its time for another Simon Says Challenge !

For our challenge this week, we want to see you Make Your Own Embellishment !

Heidi is again giving away a $50 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store to the lucky winner !

I decided to make a gift box for this week's challenge and made most of the embellishments myself !

I used a Sizzix die to actually make the box (a very good investment even if I say so myself) these boxes are so easy and quick to make.

I used a sheet of 12x12 Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby DP.

The lace is from my stash.

The tag is a Tim Holtz Manila Tag which I have covered with Vintage Photo distress ink and tissue tape down the sides. I stamped the tag with an unknown flourish stamp I have. I also added a piece of film strip.

The flower behind the clay embellishment is a Prima Artistry Flower Old Script.

The clay embellishment was made from clay and a push mould. I painted it when dry with some pearl paint and then added some Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the high spots.

The butterflies have been punched from a Martha Stewart punch.

The seam binding is from my stash and was originally cream until I dyed with some Watermelon alcohol ink and blending solution.

The sentiment is a Melissa Frances transfer.

As always the rest of the Design Team have made some super duper cards for your inspiration - hop over and take a look !

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and look forward to seeing your homemade embellishments.

Take care and see you again soon.
