The Whole Enchilada

When I looked at today's Technique Lover's Challenge, I wasn't going to do it. The challenge was to make a set of 3x3 cards and a box for them to go in, or The Whole Enchilada. Now, I am not much on making boxes and sets of cards, and honestly, I have no idea why but my pal Jodi(kharmagirl) convinced me that I needed to give it a try, so I decided I would. I originally bought this set after seeing some of her fabulous creations, so I decided that I would use it to make my set. The box was made first using one of the patterns linked to the challenge. I decided that I wanted my box covered with DP, so I cut a piece the same size as my card stock and glued it on. I made the band using another piece of the Summer Picnic DP and then wrapped my ribbon around it. I stamped all my fruit in Real Red once and then in Wild Wasabi, and cut out the different pieces. I then covered my fruit with crystal effects to make it shiny. I tried to do a different layout and ribbon on each one, but I put silver brads on all of them, because you know I love my brads!! That is all for me for now. I am off to try to do the My Favorite Things sketch for today!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

paper- Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Summer Picnic DSP
