Dottie's World Challenge-Anything but a normal shaped card!

Hello and Happy Sunday!
Today is another Dottie's World Challenge; and the very talented June wants us to make something a little bit different....anything but a normal shaped card and a Charmed Download.
I love making boxes. :o)
Here is a close up of my creation:
And here are the complete details:
Paper is brand new and a collection that I am totally IN LOVE with!!!......
My Mind's Eye-Ooh La La. So very pretty!
The Charmed Download is from the Pixie Chicks #1 collection. I colored her in with copics and stickles
The The bling is from Prima
I used a Timeless Template-Get A Handle On It to make the box.
I also used a SU! small oval punch for the handle and a SU! scallop border punch

Thanks for looking and make sure you check out the DW challenge blog to see what all the other designer's came up with.

But before I go.....I have some more Birthday cards and stash to share with you.:o)
My good bloggin' friend Kelly sent me these charms and card the other day...she didn't know it was my bday but I'm adding it in here anyways.
She also sent me this beautiful card...isn't it just beautiful?
My fellow TS designer, BETH sent me this beautiful card...which I just love! The colors and details are just so beautiful.
And then my good friend Shelly(she's a SU! demonstrator) made me this beautiful card, that just happens to have a whole set of SU! buttons in it! Isn't it just so cute and so clever??

Anyways, the countdown is on....three more days until back to school...well for my two oldest anyways. I'm homeschooling my three youngest this year. ;O) Wish me luck!

The box is lovely. I like boxes, but aren`t to good to make some myself. However I do love to see others make them. The papers are great and I understand why you love them. It is so much great SU tools and other stuff. I am a big fan of it. It to bad we can`t get it here in Norway. I love their punches and want them all...
Beautiful cards you received.
Hugs Gunn

Hi Nicole,
I've just stumbled across your blog and I love your cards! Also, while I'm here, I just wanted to let you know about a new challenge starting soon. It's called Crafty Calendar Challenge and there is a Design Team Call going on there at the moment, if you're interested. :)
