Paintbox Poppets Tealight Card & Box

Phew!!!! Can't believe I have managed to make this delightful Tealight card in a box using the Paintbox Poppets CD. I followed Louise Welsh's instructions on the Crafter's Companion Website you must view Louise's blog she makes gorgeous cards and I mean gorgeous!!!!!

Not going to lie it did take me a while but I suppose things always do when you haven't done it before! Unfortunately my printer doesn't take Centura Pearl card so had to measure my papers but quite like the effect of the white border around the edges.  I coloured in using Speccies and had a little lesson from Louise the other week on how to do shading on the dress (need more practice!!) but isn't the little girl adorable!
Not sure who it is for but I just so wanted to make one and I totally loved making it! Will add the greetings once I know who its for!!!!

If you haven't already made one, please, please, please pop over to view the project. Louise has done an excellent job on explaining how to make this fabulous gift and you don't have to put tealights in, it could be sweeties instead!!!!!!
Hope everyone has had a fab Easter and not eaten too many eggs!

Thanks for taking the time to pop over :-)
