Anything But a Card at Allsorts

Good morning. Thank goodness it's Saturday - my DH has arrived back safely from Japan and is now on holiday for 17 days - yippee :-)
We are not having a summer holiday abroad this year - we are spending quality time with the family especially the newest members aka
Oliver Gregory Parker - my Grandson and Lola Arizona Parker-Gray - my Grand-Daughter
but we will be going to Portugal in October :-)
So this week at Allsorts it's my turn to host the challenge and I would like to see:


I decided to make a tissue box cover.

I have used some gorgeous DP's from Shabby Princesss - Express Yourself - available here
printed direct onto cardstock - I got a new printer from the princely sum of £37.00 (including ink cartridges) that is top loading - so I can now print onto card :-)
I also printed some of the flowers that come as elements with the kit and resized them so I could layer them.

Here's a close up of the flowers:
This also used:
Image - Sneezing Henry (received in a blog candy from the lovely Vicky) - thanks hun
Coloured with PM's
Scrummy ribbons and pearls from stash
Martha Stewart doily border punch and butterfly punch

Here's a close up of the image:
